The United Nations Association UAE announces book written by aspiring diplomats – 22 teen delegates from Dubai’s most historic Model U.N. conference

United Arab Emirates, 26th Jan 2024, King NewsWire — The unique book project that began during Dubai Expo at the historic Model United Nations conference, EXPOMUN, is coming to fruition – and to readers globally this February. The book, written by a diverse set of teenage delegates, brings to the forefront thoughts on world affairs and the future of diplomacy and will debut during the Dubai World Government Summit next month. 

“Youth Diplomacy in Action, Diversity and Dynamism: The Essence of Model U.N.” contains experiences, stories, and philosophies of 22 introspective and accomplished teens as they navigate youth and their future prospects. Foreword by Robert Kris, Political Advisor for the U.S. Mission to the U.N. in New York formerly stationed in UAE at the U.S. Embassy, Mr. Kris played an integral role in the early days of the United Nations Association UAE (UNA-UAE) in-country.

According to the inaugural Secretary-General of the UNA-UAE, Lisa La Bonte, “The 22 students who contributed to this book hail from nearly as many nations. Each is impressive and all hold great potential for management. What we’ve attempted to do, is to move them toward leadership through programs that call for them to “DO”. For example, solutions to SDGs has been a focal point. What sets our Model U.N. conferences apart is that we focus on action and outcomes – beyond academic exercises and simulations, UNA-UAE delegates plot real-world solutions. Students who are execution oriented and can facilitate tangible outputs will be best suited to affect positive change in the future.”

The book is being published by Uplifting Books and will be available at select UAE booksellers, online. Pre-order available at
