Registration

The deadlines for applications and dates for notifications can be found on our website under Registration Details

When completing Form I, MUN Directors must indicate how many Student Officers they would like to recommend. Application forms can be requested by the Director by sending an email to bermun@gmail.com. Please be reminded that a recommendation by the MUN Director is mandatory. Only complete applications will be considered. The deadline to submit applications is to be determined.

Please refer to our deadlines listed under Registration Details. Students who wish to take part in the ICJ, apply directly over the website under the respective links. Applicants will be notified via email.

Each school may designate one delegate as ambassador. This ambassador will hold an opening speech for the delegation in the opening ceremonies and might be asked to briefly join one of the Security Councils or the International Court of Justice, if the country’s policy is relevant to the discussion.


To designate a delegate as ambassador, log in to the database and go to the ‘Show School’ page. Directors can then choose one registered delegate by clicking on the pencil icon in the respective row of the chosen delegate (‘edit’). At the bottom of the edit form the box labeled ‘Ambassador’ must be checked to designate the delegate as ambassador. Please remember to ‘save’ your changes. Please only do so for one student per school.

That depends on the countries/NGOs you have been assigned– some have one delegate, others have four or more. Please refer to the country list on our website and your school’s Form II.

The Delegate Registration is a field-enabled form to enter detailed information about school, directors, delegates, arrival/departure times etc. This information is essential. If your school is accepted to participate, you must complete this information by a date to be determined. A link to Form II is available on our website.

Please register all of your delegates before the deadline listed on our website under Registration Details

Accessing the Database

Use this link to enter your username and password that have been sent to the email address you originally registered with (Form I). The password is case-sensitive. Instead of copy/pasting the password, try also typing it in. If the problem persists, send us an email at bermun@gmail.com.

Please send us an email requesting your username and password.

Make sure that you only select one delegate per country and committee.

In the ‘Show School’ menu point, you can find a table with all your participants. Each row has an edit button (on the far right – it looks like a pencil), where you can then edit all information regarding your delegates. Please make sure the correct buttons are clicked for hoodies and dance participation.

In the ‘Register Delegates’ section, you can add delegates, assign committees and add additional teachers.
The ‘Show School’ section shows all school data that you have entered so far. The lists of students and directors on this page include Student Officers and ICJ. The table allows you to edit anyone’s personal information.

Committees

The number of delegates per committee varies and ranges from the Security Councils (15 delegates) to about 50 delegates.

During the Conference

The Opening Ceremony will be held at the Konrad Adenauer Foundation on Thursday afternoon. Please note that registration takes place beginning at 15:00. At least one representative from each school must register and pick up conference materials. The Closing Ceremony on Saturday will be held at the same venue on Saturday afternoon.

Opening speeches by the ambassadors during the conference’s opening ceremony should be no longer than one minute. They are both a welcome address and policy statement pertaining to the BERMUN2 main theme.

Yes, lunch will be provided both on Friday and Saturday. 

Admins are dedicated students from the John F. Kennedy School, who provide great help before and during the conference. They aid with matters such as setting up, note passing, refreshments, cookie breaks, and organizational matters etc. They can also be contacted for lost and found items.

Delegates must bring

  1. conference package (received during registration)
  2. writing materials
  3. official delegation notepaper
  4. print-outs of their resolutions (5-10 copies)
  5. policy statements
  6. USB stick for sharing of resolutions
  7. laptop or other electronic devices (optional)

The conference is conducted in English. As a bi-cultural, bilingual school that challenges students to learn and master a partner language, the John F. Kennedy School offers non-English speaking students the opportunity to practice and refine their language skills. It is important to remember that for the overwhelming majority of delegates at this conference, English is a second language. Nevertheless, all delegates must learn the rules of debate and carry out the necessary preparation and research before the conference so that their work at BERMUN2 is productive and meaningful.

Please keep in mind that Security Council delegates must be fluent in English, very well informed about the topics and the current situation in world politics, and ready to present their country’s opinion at all times.
