Students participate in first Model United Nations-Model African Union

Delegates from nations such as France, Argentina, and People’s Republic of China met in Sierra Hall on Saturday to discuss a crisis between the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo. After hours of arguing and debates, the representatives unanimously passed two resolutions that ended the conflict which drew applause from all those present.
The crisis was a simulation and the delegates were political science and Pan-African studies students. They were taking part in the first joint Model United Nations (UN)- Model African Union (AU) Simulation on campus. About 20 students took part in the simulation, which was presented with the help of students from College of the Canyons.
David Horne, Pan-African studies professor, said  he would like to see this happen every year.
“We want to expand the opportunity to train students to become diplomats,” Horne said.
Horne said the field of diplomacy involves negotiation and that these students will be prepared for that.
“You can not solve everything with a gun in your hand,” Horne said.
He called the students in attendance “pioneers” because of the combined simulation.
“You are the future leaders,” Horne said.
Professors from both departments were on hand, but the proceedings were exclusively run by the students.
Sheba Lo, Pan-African studies professor, said the experience for her students will be life changing.
“It’s amazing to watch the transformation of our students,” Lo said.
The simulation acted as training for students in both departments. Pan-African studies students will go to the Model African Union Conference in Washington, DC on February 20 where they will be the only school from California. The political science students will go to the National Model UN Conference in New York City on March 30. There they will compete against other schools from not only the US, but around the world.
For Josh Henderson, junior double majoring in political science and Pan-African studies, the conference was his first time taking part in a Model UN.
“This is one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had.” Henderson said.
Henderson will be part of the delegation going to DC.
“It feels like this is something I can do,” he said.
He also said the simulation has been eye-opening.
“I feel like I’m more prepared than I was before,” Henderson said.
Jennifer De Maio, political science professor, said both programs focus on diplomacy.
“We wanted to do something to increase community involvement,” De Maio said.
De Maio said the combination of Model UN and Model AU was a perfect match.
“It was a natural combination, both programs focus on diplomacy,” De Maio said.
De Maio said the conference was a success in part because of the assistance from the university.
“We got a lot of support from the Dean of College of Social and Behavioral Science and AS,” De Maio said.
学生参加第一次模拟联合国 - 非洲联盟模拟
代表国家如法国,阿根廷和中华人民共和国的代表上周六在塞拉利昂馆讨论中非共和国和刚果民主共和国之间的危机。经过争论和辩论的时间,代表们一致通过了两项决议,结束时所有在场的人给出了雷鸣般的掌声。
这次讨论是模拟经济危机,参加的人大代表们是政治学和泛非研究的学生。他们是弟一次参加联合模拟联合国( UN) - 校园模型非洲联盟(非盟)的仿真。约20名学生参加了模拟,参加了这个会议帮助学生更好的从大学拓展到校外。
大卫·霍恩,泛非研究教授说,他希望每年都看到这种事情发生。
“我们要扩大的机会,培养学生成为外交官, ”霍恩说。
霍恩说,外交领域涉及谈判和这些学生将为该准备。
“你不能用枪解决一切问题”霍恩说。
他称,因为联合仿真的学生出席“先驱” 。
“你是未来的领导者, ”霍恩说。
两个部门的教授到场,但诉讼程序完全由学生经营的。
巴罗,泛非研究教授表示,这些经验对她的学生将是生活的改变。
“令人惊奇的看着学生的转变 ”罗说。
这2个部门将对学生进行仿真训练。泛非研究院的学生将前往华盛顿特区参加示范非洲联盟会议,该会议将咋2月20日举行,他们将是唯一来自加州的学校。政治科学专业的学生将去参加3月30日位于纽约市的全国模拟联合国会议。在那里,他们与其他学校的学生进行辩论,这些学校不仅来自美国而且包含世界各地的。
乔什 - 亨德森,主修政治学和泛非研究学,本次会议是他第一次参加的模拟联合国会议(MMUN)。
“这是是我以前所没有经历过的最奇妙的经历”亨德森说。
恒基兆业将成为组团赴直流的一部分。
“这感觉就像这个事情我可以做, ”他说。
他还表示,模联一直是大开眼界。
“我觉得我比之前更愿意参加”亨德森说。
珍妮弗.德马约,政治学教授说,这两个方案将重点放在外交(外教口语)上。
“我们希望做一些事情促使更多的团体参与到这种会议室中”德马尤说。
德马约说,模拟联合国(MMUN)和非盟模型的结合是一种完美的匹配。
“这是一个自然的结合,这2个会议都集中在外交上,”德马尤说。
德马约说,这次会议之所以成功主要是因为有大学的大力协助。
“我们得到了很多来自社会和行为科学和AS学院院长的支持,”德马尤说。
