RhodesMRC 2017 will be the 8th University Edition of the Rhodes Model Regional Co-operation, a conference simulating the works of regional international organizations. Growing from 2 committees and 50 participants in 2010 to 9 committees and 500+ available seats for 2017, RhodesMRC was always about innovating, expanding, including everyone in. Till today more than 1000 young students and professionals from 22 countries have visited Rhodes for five days in October to have an amazing academic experience, develop their skills, entagle in a benefiting intercultural exchange, in one of the most amazing heritage backdrops available.
One World | 9 Committees | 500+ Participants
For its 8th Edition, RhodesMRC, has split the University and High School conference in two completely separate events, in order to facilitate the participation of more participants in both. RhodesMRC 2017 has been designed with specific targets in mind: 1. Maximize the possible number of participants, 2. Further diversify its set of simulated organizations, 3. Be representative of almost every region of the world.
- With 9 committees and exercising the dual delegation practice, this year's conference will have 380 seats for member states and 110 seats for observer states to its offerings, a high increase to our available seats of initially planned 220 back in 2016 (that ended up expanding to 350 delegates).
- Adding two further organizations, we further enhance our offerings to organizations with high political significance (NATO, OSCE, LAS, MEPC), with democracy and human rights at its core (Council of Europe, OAS, African Union) or strong financial and development aspects (BSEC, APEC), coverning a wide set of topics as our agenda will prove.
- With the addition of APEC, the East Asia and the Pacific are now represented to the conference, which including the observer-states of our organizations it includes almost every country of the world (sorry Nepal and North Korea).
