KAIHLMUN’16 Conference Letter

Highly regarded visitor,

It is my absolute pleasure and distinct honour to extend my appreciation for all participants of the very first session of Kartal Anadolu Imam Hatip High School International Model United Nations Conference (KAIHLMUN) that took place June 2nd-5th, 2016 in the Istanbul office of Foundation for Political, Economic and Social Research (SETA).

KAIHLMUN ’16 is a remarkable offshoot that derived itself from the course of intellectual cultivation of KAIHLMUN Club with three years’ experience in global studies, international extra-curriculars and surely, Model UN simulations.

The changes in the story of the world is not really different to that of an individual life. It has its ups and downs, it weathers storms, it learns, it matures and it evolves. We believe that we as individuals are the ones bringing the world up to what it is now, our words, our cogitations, our work for auspicious todays and hope for the future where the children of tomorrow dream away in the wind of change. With this in mind, the theme of the very first session of KAIHLMUN was set as “Change the Change”.

“In 20th century, while we were beginning to develop an endangered species movements, we didn’t have an endangered people’s movement.”

This is how Samantha Power referred to the aftermath of the Rwandan genocide as she quite poignantly drew distinction to how we as the world failed in the operationalisation of “never again” albeit culturally owning the idea inspired by her words, we wanted this year’s theme to ignite your mind with critical thoughts about how well the change is accordingly managed and how directly we’re heading to our destination.

KAIHLMUN’16 held six committees that were served in the best way possible to satisfy you.

We simulated three General Assembly committees, namely Social, Cultural and Humanitarian Committee, Disarmament and International Security Committee and Territorial Disputes Committee where the participants had the opportunity to have a better grasp of the ongoing situation of the entire globe and analyse the outcome of the era the world is evolving into.

We had three Specialised Agencies the first two of which let the participants discover the hidden parts of history and make critical changes that might turn the world inside out.

In Historical Security Council, we took the participants back to 2011 to witness the first sparks that culminated in 2016’s Syria in as much as to garner a thorough, cross-comparative and comprehensive perspective on the ongoing situation in Syria.

Divan-ı Hümayun welcomed the participants with its groundbreaking structure that experienced delegates, in this case Divan Members, embraced with the help of their fluency in Ottoman Turkish, knowledge in Turkish History and enthusiasm to conquer Istanbul.

Last but not the least, Human Rights Council was held in Arabic and gathered for the matters the

Arab world is more preoccupied with than the rest, ergo fluency in Arabic in means of developing

a better understanding was required for delegates wishing to apply.

“If one had but a single glance to give the world, one should gaze on Istanbul”

I am rather chaffed to know that the participants never regretted their glance at historic, vibrant and renowned Istanbul while enjoying the international structure of KAIHLMUN ’16, which allowed them to embellish their MUN experience with its diverse background and discover motley and broad ways of thinking.

Every thought deserves a voice and every one deserves to be heard. We believe that we are the ones to turn this cacophonous music into a melody of unity.

We are as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided. Only together, is the world a better place.

I was more than honoured to have served as the Secretary General in the very first edition of KAIHLMUN.
