Having been established as the first high school offering vocational religious training combined with intensive foreign-language education in Turkey, Kartal Anadolu Imam Hatip is also the first state school to offer Cambridge IGCSE curriculum to its students, and the second to offer IB, thus being one of Turkey’s leading public schools with a high national and international reputation. The school has had an active Model United Nations club for five years, a club not only attending regional student UN simulations and receiving numerous awards, but also attending and organizing other political workshops and conferences.
Established in 2014 in Kartal Anadolu Imam Hatip High School, KAIHLMUN Club has so far attended many regional student Model UN conferences as active participants and business-politics conferences aimed at professionals as spectators in addition to occasional workshops with researchers in Foundation for Social, Economic and Political Research (SETA), the so-called ‘think tank’ of contemporary Turkish foreign politics, scholars in the field of politics in various universities such as Sehir University and Marmara University, and the organizers of large-scale international events such as International Arabic Competitions. With the motive of sharing the intellectual accumulation from these activities, KAIHLMUN Club had the honour to be a part of the MUN community not only as applicants but also as organizers last year. In 2017, the club members are more than elated to elevate this effort to offer an even better conference.
