About the Conference
Welcome to the official website of MUNSA XVIII, the largest high school run Model United Nations conference held in the western United States. MUNSA is hosted by The International School of the Americas, a public magnet school in the North East Independent School District. On January 8th through January 10th, 2014, MUNSA will welcome over 1200 delegates to the Trinity University campus in downtown San Antonio.
Topics of debate will range from "Transmission of Disease Across Borders" and "Discussing the Impact of Urbanization on Child Labor" to "Addressing the Lack of Maternal Health Care in Both Developed and Developing Countries" and "Analyzing Actions to Remove Landmines in East Africa" This year, MUNSA has assumed the theme of human migration and is implementing this theme into every committee room that will be hosted at the conference. This year's conference title, Odyssey, is emblematic of this theme and of how delegates will be expected to act: traveling with the people of the world to solve problems through international cooperation and without compromising the authenticity of his or her country's position.
