HIAMUN serves as a platform of expression. It is a platform for debate and exchange of ideas. It is a way to surpass the state of oblivion that we can be attached to and reach an answer to the central question of how to stimulate change… a question vital to the process of growth. In light of that this year I Ingy El Sheikh, President of the Arab League and my esteemed chair, Yassine Abdel Hamid hope to carry the purpose of HIAMUN and use it as the preeminent base of the Arab League.
The Arab League being founded in the 22 March 1945 aimed to be a regional organisation of Arab states with a focus on developing the economy, resolving disputes and coordinating political aims. Hence, we have decided upon prominent and pressing issues that face the Arab world today. The first topic being: Addressing the issue of political censorship in the Arab world, various aspects fall under the issue of political censorship that can be debated . The second topic covers the economic aspirations of the Arab League being: Establishing measures to increase efforts towards economic integration amongst Arab nations. The last topic sheds light on the ongoing question of Arab refugees being: The question of the obligations and responsibilities of Arab nations with regards to accepting and providing full accommodation for Arab refugee populations. This topic can be taken into various perspectives whether humanitarian, political or economic.
My Chair and I hope to witness a well rounded and contentious debate portraying each and every one of your ideas, of course being built on strong well thought out resolutions. We also aim to meet your expectations of us, creating a comfortable and well organised forum for the delegates.
Ingy El Sheikh, President of the Arab League.
