Stencilling Diplomacy


March 1 - 3, 2024

Honourable MUN Directors, esteemed delegates, respected committee Chairs and welcomed guests,

The fourteenth annual Dulwich International Model United Nations conference (DIMUN XIII) will be held at Dulwich College Beijing from the 1st to the 3rd of March 2024.  


Dear all, we invite you to boost the nature of progress and change, examine the systems we have long accepted as just and seek solutions that will fulfill the need for ethics and sustainability. With a growing legacy of 14 years, the annual DIMUN conference serves to provide curious middle school students with the opportunity to discover and experience MUN from a young age.  DIMUN is an amazing opportunity for students to immerse themselves in an engaging introduction to public speaking and current affairs, whilst meeting students from other countries and schools, and sharing their opinions on some of the crucial problems surrounding our world today. This, we believe, is essential to expand students' global awareness, and build empathy towards our neighbouring communities.  


At DIMUN XIII, delegates will be debating a total of 14 topics in seven different committees. The conference will be supported by experienced Key Stage 4/5 (high school) chairs, the tech team, the admin team, and the DIMUNITE press team, led by Secretaries-General Rachael Ho and Olivia Kim as well as Deputy Secretaries-General Sophie Sun and Hillary Tian . 


Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information, or any questions regarding the conference at:

 Mission Statement 

Welcome to DIMUN XIV: Stencilling Diplomacy 


  DIMUN is committed to shaping the diplomats of tomorrow, harnessing the evocative essence of stenciling within the realm of diplomacy. Our mission revolves around empowering delegates to master the art of layering intricate diplomatic solutions. We believe in the metaphor of stenciling as a guide, where each layer represents a diverse viewpoint, converging to create collaborative and innovative approaches to global issues. Through this approach, we aim to engrain in delegates the essential values of negotiation, empathy, and cooperation as they navigate the complexities of international relations. 


  At the heart of our mission is the dedication to nurturing a rich tapestry of understanding and collaboration. By fostering an environment that celebrates diverse perspectives, the conference endeavors to weave a fabric of interconnectedness and mutual respect. Stenciling diplomacy serves as the cornerstone, enabling delegates to not only comprehend but also appreciate the depth and intricacies of negotiations, bridging gaps and fostering a global community poised for meaningful dialogue and joint problem-solving. 

  Through our emphasis on stenciling diplomacy, We seek to mold future leaders from both our chairs and delegates, who approach diplomacy as an art form—a delicate, layered process that, when skillfully applied, fosters effective communication and sustainable resolutions.  

Message from the Founders

Honourable Directors, Distinguished Chairs, and most of all Esteemed Delegates, The Dulwich International Model United Nations (DIMUN) conference was created to bring MUN to students often considered too young to fully understand, appreciate, and participate in the complexities of politics, debates, and problem-solving. When we came up with the idea for DIMUN, at around sixteen years old, we had already attended several Model UN conferences around the Asia Pacific and knew that this perception was completely wrong. 

DIMUN was therefore founded to provide opportunities for Key Stage 3 (middle school) to experience Model UN in an academically rigorous but supportive environment, with the guidance that new delegates and directors deserve. At the heart of the DIMUN experience is the belief that MUN should be by and for students, and that with open minds, curiosity, and creativity, students are willing and able to rise to every challenge.
