Report



With over 15 institutions and over 250 participants, the second edition of IIMUN Kottayam was held once again at the Excelsior English School. The inauguration ceremony was graced by the presence of Mr. T.P. Srinivasan, the former Permanent Representative of India to the United Nations. The fruitful discussions and debates done by the students in a very professional diplomatic fashion led to some of the most comprehensive resolutions found in any MUN conference. We eagerly look forward to the third edition of the conference.
