UB Students Speak about Cyberterorism and Climate Change at PIMUN

There are many ways for students to be able to participate in solving global problems. One of them is participating in international forums. This is what four students from the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences and the Faculty of Cultural Studies, Universitas Brawijaya did some time ago.

Queen Nindhya Natasha, Rhani Lilianti Kata, Deraldo Prasetya from FISIP and Mohammad K. Hatta Adiatha had the opportunity to represent Universitas Brawijaya as an official delegation at Paris International Model United Nations event, in the midst of 2022.

PIMUN, according to Queen, is a simulation of the United Nations assembly which is routinely held every year. “This activity was organized by Paris Intercollegiate United Nations Committee (CINUP), attended by 350 delegates from various countries,” she explained.

In this event, she added, the participants were given the opportunity to discuss and be diplomatic about international issues. “From here, the result is in the form of a resolution with the main objective of producing a draft resolution on certain issues, to strengthen the role of delegations in international forums which can be a potential source for the development of Indonesia’s young generation in the future,” said the student who studies International Relations.

On this occasion, UB delegation was allocated to two councils, namely the Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) (2 in UNHCR and 2 in DISEC), with their respective areas of discussion. “At UNHCR, we discussed the definition and legal status of climate refugees or disaster refugees due to climate change. This international agreement can later be adopted in the national laws of each country. Meanwhile at DISEC, we debate about the best solution regarding cyber terrorism on an international scale,” said Queen.

Moreover, the students also had the opportunity to meet the Education and Culture Attaché (Atdikbud) of the Indonesian Embassy (KBRI) in Paris. “Here, we met Prof. Warsito and received direction and advice to continue to excel. He also appreciated us as representatives of Indonesia in a prestigious event,” he concluded. [Humas UB/ Trans. Iir]
