Dear participants, Advisors and Parents, Welcome to the Kadir Has University Model United Nations Conference 2017! My name is Polat Yamaner, I am a junior law student at Kadir Has University and I have the honour to serve you as the Secretary-General of the fourth edition of HASMUN. Kadir Has University Model United Nations Club, Organization Team and the Secretariat are proud to announce that our fourth session will be held from May 5th to 7th on the Cibali Campus of Kadir Has University, İstanbul. Simulations coursing from historical events to the futuristic concepts, the committees of this year’s HASMUN will be met under the theme “Human Rights: From Respect of the States to the Approbation of the Imperative”. Accelerated from the establishment of the modern nation state, the notion of human rights has shown a great change and development throughout the late history and as a consequence; profoundly affected the international relations, the way of diplomacy, the law, the understanding of security and certainly humanism and humanitarianism. Accordingly, participants of the conference are aimed to confront with the modern challenges concerning the fundamental rights and freedoms and the very value of the individuals, human dignity; from the perspective of both national and international institutions. Apart from the differentiating dimension of the academia, as one of the advancing conferences distinguished for its organizational success, the Director-General of our conference Mr. Alihan Eyüboğlu and his deputy, Ms. Gizem Eşssizoğlu will constitute the organizational basis of the conference with their high-level knowlodge and skills that they have presented in numerous different circumstances. Also, it must be noted that, amid the exacting and experimental environment of the Secretariat, the Deputy-Secretary-General, Mr. Kerem Karaçay will definitely be my foremost ally. Finally, as always, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. The entire staff of HASMUN 2017 and I are committed to create a dynamic and enhancing experience for high-school and university students from all around the world.
