University Partnership & History: The BIMUN Lecture Series is part of Studium Universale and a core component of the Certificate of Intercultural Competence program at the University of Bonn. Our program has been going strong since 2005 and has welcomed speakers from across Germany and around the world.

Interdisciplinary Approach: Global organizations employ interdisciplinary approaches to problem-solving in the realm of international affairs and public policy. The BIMUN Lecture Series reflects this commitment by providing a space for scholars of various disciplines to reflect upon a unified theme.

The theme for the 2023 Summer Semester is

“Hand-in-hand: Multilateralism in a New Age of Geopolitical Conflict”


Language of Lectures: Lectures are held in either German or English based on the preference of the guest speaker.

Emerging Scholars Initiative (ESI): In celebration of the UN 75 / Lecture Series 15 dual anniversary in the 2020/2021 winter semester, we launched a program called the Emerging Scholars Initiative which continued until the 2021 summer semester. The results of the past few years of work will be presented at this semester's Lecture Series by former LS director David Smith. More information TBA.
