It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2nd FREDMUN (Frederick Model United Nations) 2017 which will be organised and hosted by Frederick University in Nicosia from 2 to 5 November 2017, under the official auspices of the United Nations.
FREDMUN 2016 was a really tremendous stone not only for the academic life of Cyprus but for the global cultural community since it was the first Model United Nations (MUN) under the official auspices of the United Nations, which has been taken place at a University level in Cyprus. During the proceedings of the three days Model Simulation of the UN (FREDMUN) conference, Frederick University welcomed over 140 students representing 22 Cypriot and international Universities who examined, analysed, negotiated a range of significant current international issues and made resolutions. Furthermore, prominent personalities honored 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 2017 is expected to succeed with even greater success and to put a remarquable impact to the ongoing global evolutions. Since it is part of the global campaign of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, especially the one related to the quality of education, FREDMUN 2017 is promised to be a great forum of diplomacy, negotiations and resolutions regarding major international issues.
Dear participants, dear future diplomats of the world, I am looking forward to seeing you to the second Model United Nations at Frederick University and I am certain that FREDMUN 2017 will be a unique and unforgettable event!
Professor George Demosthenous
Rector, Frederick University
