MUNCongratualations to HCRI’s Dr Jenny Peterson, Dr Jenny Carson, and Amanda McKorkindale (PhD student), and 21 of our MA students whoran this exciting Model United Nations programme (now in its 2nd year).

The programme, run by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council’s Ethnic Diversity Service and the Schools Linking Network, brought together a number of students from schools in Stockport. The students worked towards running a mock UN General Assembly session which sought to find solutions to the global refugee crisis, culminating in a UN session. The feedback from teachers has been outstanding; for example one said:

“The MA students were a credit to themselves and the University throughout this programme – I hope they all get tremendous credit and kudos for their involvement from their assessors. This has been a phenomenally enriching experience for our students, something they will remember for the rest of their lives.”
