During December 2015, a delegation representing NUS, with support from the Political Science Society, participated in the Pan Asia Model United Nations conference in Taipei. They competed against several other delegations from the Asia Pacific and debated on issues across eight committees ranging from maritime piracy to Domestic Terrorism in Southeast Asia to the situation in Yemen.


Following four days of intense multilateral negotiations and crisis resolution, the NUS delegation won the group delegation award, edging out stiff competition from Taiwan, China, the Philippines and Singapore (another team from the Yale-NUS College).
