Transcript of History of AIMUN
In 2005, the first AIMUN marked the start of a new successful series of Model United Nations simulations and was the first introduction of the Model United Nations in Alexandria’s history. The program was organized under the auspices of the His Excellency the Governor of Alexandria. The overall objective of the AIMUN 2005 was to introduce the concept of Sustainable Development through simulating the United Nations Economic and Social Council “ECOSOC”.
the AIMUN 2005 conference focused on the research and evaluation of the MENA countries engagement and performance at the ECOSOC in the contest of the UN’s Millennium Development Goals “MDGs”.
AIMUN 2005 was held in partnership with Bibliotheca Alexandrina, Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI), and The Russian Cultural Center.
After the great success of AIMUN 2005, the AIMUN organizers felt a need to continue building on their experience in finding an important niche for youth development and empowerment in Alexandria. In 2006 a decision was made to build on the experience gained from the first AIMUN and having two parallel simulations for two of the most highly recognized UN Agencies, the Security Council and the High Level Group for Alliance of Civilizations “UNAOC”. This year the event was under the auspices of His Excellency the Governor of Alexandria. The AIMUN 2006 program contained a number of workshops that reviewed a number of books written and edited by a number of international well known figures and global thinkers from different nations, these workshops gave an opportunity for the 120 delegates to consider different arguments and background information from different points of views.

In the third year of the AIMUN program a new structure and new developments came with a newly established partnership with the World Bank, which became one of the leading partners of the program.

In 2007 AIMUN was a simulation of the United Nations Peace Building Council.

The Peace Building Commission plays a unique role in (1) bringing together all of the relevant actors, including international donors, the international financial institutions, national governments, troop contributing countries, (2) marshaling resources and (3) advising on and proposing integrated strategies for post-conflict peace building and recovery and where appropriate, highlighting any gaps that threaten to undermine peace. The AIMUN 2010 benefited around 150 young people, by providing them with deeper understanding of Humanitarian and Disaster Relief Assistance, International Law, Refuges issues, Millennium Development Goals, and many other issues related to peace building.
