The 15th Economix: Global Economic Challenges promotes “The Resurgence of Neo-Protectionism: A Changing World” as this year competition’s grand theme. Participants will have to observe the economic phenomena caused of the practice of protectionism that has currently re-emerged in some part of the world. Those economic phenomena could be obstacles or opportunities for global economy. Therefore participants have to elaborate the things related to protectionism, give the solution to problems, and propose a way to utilize the opportunities of the protectionism. The participants’ knowledge, ability to elaborate problems and solutions will be observed by the judges.
Economix MUN or Model United Nations¬¬ is one of the main events of the 15th Economix: Global Economic Challenges. Previously named E-MUNC (Economix Model United Nations Conference) is changed into Economix MUN for rebranding purposes to minimize any misunderstanding amongst potential delegates regarding the topic of the discussion. The name Economix MUN is therefore aimed to increase the number of delegates. This year, Economix MUN will be held on 14-15 November 2017. With this year’s grand theme “The Resurgence of Neo-Protectionism: A Changing World”, Economix MUN raises the theme of “Trump Administration: The Reformation of US Policies towards Anti-Globalization Measures”. With this socio-political theme, we cordially welcome all participants from all majors and not only limited to economics.
