Bilkent Historical Model United Nations (BHMUN) is an educational simulation of the United Nations (UN) organisation. The Secretariat is looking for future world leaders to go back in time and debate serious issues during a past decade to ‘Innovate the Future’. Those who attend BHMUN come from a variety of backgrounds, nations and ethnicity. The BHMUN conference uses Harvard procedures which are very different to that of THIMUN affiliated conferences. We believe that having both a historical element together with Harvard procedure makes BHMUN an exceptionally unique conference within Turkey.
The Secretariat is responsible for assigning committees and the respective agenda items. The Under Secretary-General for each committee is responsible for providing the Study Guide that offers a context for the agenda items and corresponding dates. The Board Members ensure the committees are formally run according to Harvard procedure.
The conference is organised by high school students for high school students. All applicants at the time of the conference must be 14 years of age or older and enrolled in a high school.
