BISA Model NATO Event 2014
On September 5-6th, the British International Studies Association will be organising a Model NATO with the participation of ten Sixth-Form colleges and Schools from Wales and England. Model NATO will be hosted by the University of South Wales and will take place in parallel with the actual NATO summit being held at the Celtic Manor hotel. The Model will replicate debate and decision-making within the alliance and will tackle the challenge of forging a final communiqué that covers a range of topical international issues. It will also deal with a rapidly-evolving crisis situation designed to test the political unity of the assembled delegates. Read more here.
