BMUN's external partnerships provide outstanding opportunities for our delegates to gain more conference experience and allow BMUN to reach beyond Berkeley to make an educational impact around the world. These partnerships are as close to home as the San Francisco Bay Area and as far from campus as the United Arab Emirates.

NATIONAL COUNCIL ON U.S.-ARAB RELATIONS
Berkeley Model United Nations (BMUN) hosts Berkeley Model Arab League Conference (BMAL) annually in partnership with the National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations.
Model Arab League is a similar form of speech and debate to Model United Nations; however, each committee only focuses on the 22 members of the Arab League. The Arab League is subdivided into individual committees, similar the the UN, that focus on various issues of importance to the Arab League area, such as defense or economic affairs.
Santa Clara Valley Model United Nation is a Model United Nations conference that had been a forum for lively debate for delegates of all ranges of experience since its conception 47 years ago. SCVMUN works to continuously uphold and maintain its atmosphere of friendly competition to foster delegates' enjoyment, learning, and growth.
Every year, BMUN partners with SCVMUN to provide chairs to their novice conference in Santa Clara.
Understanding Nations Through Model UN
Understanding Nations Thru Model UN differs from traditional and competitive driven Model UN Programs by encouraging mutual understanding and constructive collaboration towards resolving the many dilemmas between nations through the educational tool of Model United Nations. BMUN helps staff the annual Pacific Rim International Model UN Conference in Japan that is organized by UN Thru MUN.
