The University of Padova call for applications to its Model United Nations UPR simulation is now open!

The Padova UPR Model will take place on 27-29 November 2019 in Padova, Italy and is designed to recreate the United Nations Universal Periodic Review as an educational activity on the international human rights mechanism. Selected teams will represent their assigned state in consideration of its political environment and will participate in the mock drafting of positions, interactive dialogue, adoption of reports, and civil society contributions. Trainings will take place, in person and online, in October.

The Padova Model UPR is open to all masters and undergraduate students in law, political science, international relations, and related fields and requires the submission of an application in groups of three with a supervising professor. Teams will recieve a certificate of participation at the conclusion of the simulation. 

The deadline to submit an application through the online form is June 20th. Selection results are to be released in early July.
