About SPNU & its Mission

You don’t have to be old to be responsible. You don’t have to be old to lead.

Sciences Po pour les Nations Unies (SPNU) is a student-led association dedicated to the promotion of diplomacy and international relations at Sciences Po Paris.

The existence of SPNU can be traced back to 2000. Sciences Po students from our organization were among the original founders of the Paris International Model United Nations, the largest MUN conference for university students in France.

Our goal is to train students to Model United Nations (MUNs) and send the most motivated of them as delegations to some MUN conferences, in France and abroad.

Moreover, we aim to raise awareness and inform students on international and diplomatic issues through conferences with guests, such as experts, researchers, and professionals, who are willing to share their experience with students. We also organise visits of international organisations and embassies, as well as more informal events like breakfast with diplomats.

Lastly, SPNU is a place where students can meet and exchange. We aim to foster a culture of diversity and tolerance among the SPNU community, including through social events and team-bonding activities.
