Arrowhead Model UN Association (AMUNA)
University of Wisconsin River Falls
410 South Third Street, River Falls, WI 54022
The University of Wisconsin River Falls is delighted to host the 38th annual Arrowhead Model United Nations Conference, April 3-6, 2014. With great hope and aspirations for the future, the United Nations was formed nearly 70 years ago during the final stages of the Second World War. The dreams upon which the United Nations was founded are reflected in the Charter’s main purposes and principles. These are to:
• Maintain international peace and security . . .
• Develop friendly relations among nations based on respect . . .
• Achieve international co-operation in solving international problems . . .
• Be a center for harmonizing the actions of nations in the attainment of these common ends.
The same hopes, aspirations, purposes and principles inspired the formation of the Arrowhead Model United Nations. They continue to serve as guidance for students from universities across the United States and Canada who join together each year at the AMUNC. We encourage you to explore this site and welcome your participation at this year’s conference!
We have designed this website to provide useful information about the Conference. We have also created a facebook page for
communication purposes: AMUNC Facebook.
Initial country assignments have been made and can be found at Country Assignments.
Our keynote address will be provided by Christian Doktor, Spokesman of the Permanent Mission of Germany to the United Nations. Mr. Doktor studied law and Romance philology at the Universities of Bonn, Geneva, and Cologne. He has experience working for the civil service, teaching in Bolivia, has worked for the World Food Programme and, in 2006, joined Germany's Federal Foreign Office. From 2006-2009 he worked mainly on European migration policy, Afghanistan, and legal questions regarding the compensation for German war crimes. In 2009-10 he was posted to Kabul and Feyzabad, leading Germany's stabilization and reconstruction program in Afghanistan. In 2010 he was transferred to the German Mission in New York, where he covered humanitarian affairs and European issues during Germany's non-permanent membership of the Security Council, before starting his current assignment as spokesperson.
