Welcoming Letter

Dear participants,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 4th FREDMUN (Frederick Model United Nations) 2020 which will be organized and hosted by Frederick University in Nicosia from 11 to 15 march 2020.

FREDMUN is already perceived as a really tremendous stone not only for the academic life of Cyprus but for the global cultural community since it is the only, at a University level in Cyprus, Model United Nations (MUN) supported officially by the United Nations. Furthermore, FREDMUN 2020 has been placed, for the fourth consecutive year, under the auspices of His Excellency, the President of the Republic of Cyprus, Mr. Nicos Anastasiades, thus reaffirming the prominent value of the institution. The formal opening of FREDMUN 2020 will take place in Nicosia on the 11th of March. Meanwhile, the honoured person for FREDMUN 2020, will be the esteemed Mr. Michael Moller, Former Under-Secretary-General of the United nations and the 12th Director General of the United nations office in Geneva, who will give a key-note speech and whose presence enhances the international prestige of our conference.

During the proceedings of the last three editions of FREDMUN, Frederick University welcomed a large number of students not only from Cypriot and Greek Universities but also from many international Universities who examined, analysed, negotiated a range of significant current international issues and made resolutions. In addition, for the third year, FREDMUN 2020 is open to high school students who wish to learn the secrets of diplomacy and discuss about the greatest human rights issues around the world. Furthermore, each year, prominent personalities honour our conference, such as distinguished officials of the United Nations, ambassadors from several counties, diplomats and esteemed members of international academic community.

All these elements justify why FREDMUN is one of the most cherished educational institutions which was born in Cyprus, at Frederick University. FREDMUN 2020 is expected to succeed with even greater success and to put a remarkable impact to the ongoing global evolutions. At a time of intense humanitarian, political and economic crisis, each society demands citizens with a strong sense of responsibility and critical ability towards the ongoing evolutions. Frederick University, remaining faithful to its mission to provide innovative and high-quality programs of study and active research, brings the Republic of Cyprus at the centre of attention by supporting and promoting the participation of young scientists, who will "provide solutions" to the major problems facing the international community today.

Dear delegates, dear future diplomats of the world, I am looking forward to seeing you to the fourth Model United Nations at Frederick University and I am certain that FREDMUN 2020 will be a unique and unforgettable event!

Best regards,
Professor George Demosthenous
Rector, Frederick University
