BIMUN/SINUB Lecture Series

The BIMUN/SINUB Lecture Series is a traditional BIMUN/SINUB project, which has been running very successfully for more than ten years. Each semester it focuses on a different topic with current relevance and international orientation.

The main purpose of the BIMUN/SINUB Lecture Series is to encourage students and the interested public to  engage themselves in international politics.  At the same time, we aim to offer a platform to international organizations and experts, who wish to raise public awareness for their vibrant and multifaceted fields of work.

The BIMUN/SINUB Lecture Series is part of the Studium Universale at the University of Bonn. It is accepted as a component for the Certificate of International Competence if attended regularly.

Would you like to become engaged in BIMUN/SINUB e.V.? Then meet us at our weekly Get Together after each lecture!
