Dutch students from Breda (the Netherlands), hosted by 2IB, took part in Model United Nations(MUN) at Spjelkavik vgs

Yesterday a full day of Model United Nations (MUN) sealed off a week of exploring perspectives relating to estrangement and migration at Spjelkavik vgs. Dutch and Norwegian students have investigated a number of perspectives related to causes and consequences  of migration as well as problems of estrangement and inclusion in our societies. Guest lecturers included author and journalist Bjørn Vatne who spoke on estrangement in literature and refugee worker Linda Dalehamn and refugee Ali Sina who gave insights on their particular perspectives.

Vice-Mayor of Ålesund, Tore Johan Øvstebø lectured on challenges of migration and inclusion, also in our local community. The leader of Amnesty International, Norway, gave a lecture on the work of their organisation, locally and globally, giving a clear sense of urgency for certain refugee groups.

In the Model United Nation students formed nations with complex attitudes towards migration, ranging from those mainly in favour to those with very restrictive policies. After much debate, disagreement and voting they were able to form the basis of a resolution which will be handed to a European Parliament Member when 2IB visits Brussels in March.

Good work, everyone!
