The International Non-Governmental Association for Scientific Research, Information and Educational Programs "Evolutio" and the Faculty of International Relations of the Belarusian State University continue to expand cooperation with regional universities, carrying out the Model United Nations on the basis of regional higher educational institutions.


On 5-6 November 2020 on the basis of the Faculty of Law of the Brest State A.S. Pushkin University and with the support of International Non-Governmental Association for Scientific Research, Information and Educational Programs "Evolutio", the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in the Republic of Belarus and the Faculty of International Relations of the Belarusian State University, the Model United Nations Conference LAWMUN-2020 was held.


The conference participants simulated a meeting of the UN Human Rights Council: 30 student delegates discussed the problem of refugee rights protection in the context of the EU-Turkey Deal.


Within the framework of the conference, lectures and welcoming remarks were made by the Legal Adviser of the UNHCR Office in the Republic of Belarus Timofey Solodkov, the dean of the Faculty of Law of Brest State A.S. Pushkin University Maria Varakulina, Senior Lecturer of the Department of Theory and History of State and Law of Brest State A.S. Pushkin University Olga Slivko, Chairman of the Observation Board of the INA "Evolutio", Dean of the FIR BSU Viktor Shadursky and Secretary General of LAWMUN Alexandr Nestrovich.


The next day, the participants faced a difficult task: to ensure respect for the rights of refugees in the context of the EU-Turkey Deal. Points poured in one after another, and hands with country placards soared up every other minute. The delegates proposed multilateral solutions to the problem, tried to cover all aspects. After that, the Human Rights Council proceeded to discuss the entire resolution. The participants had to rethink a number of points; contradictions arose over the compliance of some of them with the UN Charter. But this obstacle was coped with, and most countries voted in favor of the resolution.


At the end of the day, Viktor Shadursky and Maria Varakulina congratulated the students on the successful Model United Nations conference by presenting gifts and certificates of participation to the delegates and organizers.
