POLITICAS

Image 01In POLITICAS, we seek to foster in students a robust understanding of the pertinent global challenges we face. By assuming the role of UN delegates in a Model United Nations (MUN) setting, students will get the chance to develop their public speaking, critical thinking and negotiation skills as they engage in intensive debates over real world issues. As students work against the clock to pass critical resolutions, they will not only develop their resilience, teamwork and analytical skills, but will also be given a taste of international politics – lobbying reluctant allies, maintaining diplomatic relations with rival states, arriving at compromises that satisfy numerous warring parties and finding solutions for complex cross boundary problems are just some of the many challenging experiences that students will face. By acquainting themselves with contemporary international issues and developing strong communication and thinking skills, students will develop into engaged global citizens who are equipped with the skills required to thrive in life beyond the classroom.
