UNYA Romania – UN Youth Moot Courts 2012

MootCourts2012The UN Youth Association of Romania is proud to present “UN Youth Moot Courts 2012 – Justice on international level!”, a project of which the main focus is the simulation of juridical procedure  in front of four main courts: International Court of Justice, The European Court of Human Rights, The Court of Justice of the European Union and The International Criminal Court. This event, which will take place on December 7-9 2012 at the Bucharest Court of Appeal, represents one of the most important activities enrolled by the association and has the objective of giving the participants the chance of putting in practice their knowledge of international law, EU law and human rights law.

The UN Youth Association of Romania is a non-governmental organization established in Bucharest whose main purpose is the promotion and the encouragement of the UN values, as they emerge from the UN Charter, in the Romanian society and among Romanian youth.

In order to achieve this goal, UN Youth Association organizes periodical seminars and conferences, workshops, but its main activity remains the annual organization of the BISMUN Conference. The association plans to continue its projects in the most important cities of Romania, offering in this way the opportunity for a larger number of students interested in international politics and contemporary issues that our generation has to face, to get involved in its activities.

All the projects of the association benefit from both promotion and recruiting among participants at a national level and also at a global level, since at several projects we have had the honor to have as guests, participants from Europe and also Asia, Africa and America.
