More than 1,400 students from 175 international institutes participated in the conference, the largest such international gathering of students. This is the first time in the history of the conference that an Asian university has won the competition. An eight-member delegation from LUMS, the university representing Pakistan at the conference for the last three years, won the Outstanding Delegation Award at the 15th such conference organised by the Harvard University from March 27 to 31 at the Peking University. The students were recognised for their excellent diplomacy skills, exceptional debating talent, knowledge of international affairs and understanding the true spirit of the UN. The students from LUMS were up against some of the world’s best universities like Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard, MIT, London School of Economics, McGill, Princeton and University of California (Berkley).
