GA First Committee (DISEC)

Marie-Elise de Gouville studies Security, Defence and Strategic Intelligence at Sciences Po Rennes for her Master’s degree and has spent the past year enjoying being an Erasmus student in Scotland. She also had the opportunity to work closely within the UN framework this summer as an intern for the French Mission to the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva.

A MUN enthusiast since her first year in Sciences Po, she has participated in various conferences throughout Europe both as a delegate and a chair and she was the President of the MUN society of Sciences Po Rennes for a year.

Her interest for international affairs led her to join the SPRIMUN adventure, as she will be in charge of Committees and Chairs this year. She will do her best to make sure this edition leads to exciting and fruitful debates! See you soon!

My name is Aurélien Sailler I am a study Law and Languages with a minor in International Relations in the University of Tours (France), two hundred kilometres away from Rennes. In my personal life, I am interested in various cultural fields, ranging from TV Series to Art and Literature. Having been interested in diplomacy and geopolitics since high school, I saw MUNs as a great opportunity to practice my debating skills while getting to know the world from a different perspective. A

fter a lot of rewarding experiences in various MUNs across Europe, it is now my utmost pleasure to be able to chair this edition of SPRIMUN. I am looking forward to meeting you all, and I am sure that together, we can create a memorable experience out of this committee.

Maxim Mayboroda is a student of diplomacy at the University of Economics in Prague. Passionate about International Relations, in 2015 he decided to answer the call for assistants and participated in a conference, which he fell in love with at first sight. This conference was PragueMUN, one of the biggest MUNs hosted in Central Europe. Today, Max is a proud member of MUN Prague, the most representative Czech Model United Nations organization that boast patronage of a number of ministries and think-tanks.

When not MUNing, Max enjoys traveling, reading, learning languages and going out with friends. He believes that MUNs are the perfect way to practice skills one would not normally learn at school and to meet like-minded people from all over the world.

UN Security Council

Currently in a Master’s degree in Human Resources and Project Management at Sciences Po Rennes, Erwann Mingant spent a year abroad in 2015 working in London and attending various MUNs. His interest in political and international studies inspired him to participate in the 2013 edition of the SPRIMUN. Since then, he has attended various MUNs, most of them as a chair in the Czech Republic, in the Russian Federation and in France. His numerous experiences led him to join this year’s team for the SPRIMUN with a renewed energy to make it the best MUN conference Rennes has ever seen. Him and his team are thrilled to organise the conference this year.

Interesting debates and continued fun are his goals for this fifth edition of the Sciences Po Rennes International Model United Nations!

Pierre Andrews is a fourth-year student at Sciences Po Rennes studying communications and management. After spending a year interning in London’s private and public communications industry, he is currently focusing his research on public participation in political marketing.

Pierre discovered MUN in his first year at Sciences Po Rennes, and in his second year helped organise the schools delegation to Edinburgh’s ScotMUN. He has also participated several times in SPRIMUN, although this will be his first time chairing.

African Union

My name is Marie Simon-Frangeul and I am a 21-year-old political science student in a French-German degree. I am currently studying at the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt in Germany.

I have three MUN experiences as a delegate; two in Praha (2015, 2016) and one in Rennes (2015). Last year, I also had the chance to chair for the first time at SpriMUN2016’s General Assembly. This was an experience I enjoyed very much and I am really looking forward to do it again this year.

As a student majoring in Latin American studies, I am very interested in development issues. If Africa is not the continent I know most, peace and food security are themes that I have studied more as they are considered major issues to solve in the future.

Currently in her second year at Sciences Po Rennes, Inès Rachedi is a student of the franco-german program. She is the VP of the society BATNA at Sciences Po Rennes and is thus in charge of the organisation of simulations within the school. She attended the MUN of Edinburg twice as a delegate, and is now co-chairing at the SPRIMUN for the first time.

Very interested in international relations, Inès will give her best so that everyone has a very powerful debate within the African Union Committee !
