BERMUN 2 Secretariat

Dear Participants of BERMUN2 2018, As the Secretariat, it is our distinct honor to welcome you to this year’s conference. There are few better platforms for young, driven students to expand their knowledge of international issues and develop socially and intellectually than MUN conferences like BERMUN2. We are a team of three students from the John F. Kennedy School who have had the opportunity to participate in a variety of different MUN conferences and gain experience that we hope to channel when working to make the 13th BERMUN2 enjoyable and instructive for everyone involved. This year, we wanted the conference theme to especially relate to the lives of young people regardless of status and privilege. The theme of Technological Innovation: Mitigating Risks and Seizing Opportunities addresses the legal, ethical, and economic challenges as well as the incredible opportunity for human progress presented to our generation by the relentless pace of technological advancement. When lobbying and debating, we hope you bear in mind the nuances of this issue and avoid resorting to the kind of dogmatism that so often hinders productive discussion. As philosopher and writer Robert M. Pirsig once said, “Technology presumes there’s just one right way to do things and there never is.” In that spirit, we encourage you to maintain an open mind to all sides of the issue. We are looking forward to meeting you in March! Sincerely, Xenia Gouras - Secretary-General Toyah Höher - President of the General Assembly Jonas Thiergart - Deputy Secretary-General
