Working to empower America’s youth, preparing them to be the leaders and thinkers of the future, the Harvard Model Congress has provided many of our country’s brightest scholars with invaluable lessons in statecraft. 
— Former United States President Bill Clinton 


Harvard Model Congress Dubai is the world's premier government simulation. For three days, students will take on the roles of US Representatives, US Senators, and UN representatives and tackle some of the world's most pressing issues. Through public speaking, negotiation, and compromise, delegates will challenge themselves to understand the nuances of politics and the intricacies of legislation. Delegates will work hand-in-hand with Harvard students to delve deeply into world issues and develop complex solutions.

Who We are

HMC Dubai is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and it is the only conference of its kind in Dubai. With a 12:1 student-staffer ratio, HMC provides an unparalleled opportunity for its delegates to learn and grow. The mission of HMC Dubai is to provide an unparalleled and immersive educational experience to educate high school students from the Middle East about the processes of government and international relations.

Our Team


The Harvard Model Congress Dubai 2020 Team is working hard to create a conference that will provide engaging discussion, an opportunity for public speaking, and lifelong memories for thousands of delegates.

The Executive Board and staffers of HMC Dubai are all current students at Harvard University.

Unlike other MUN conferences or government simulations in and around Dubai, HMC is a truly international congregation of students from all over the world, especially from the Gulf, an area that is already so diverse and geopolitically charged. That multiculturalism perfectly embodies the ethos of simulations like these - there’s a palpable difference of opinion in the room and that stimulates debate and discourse that can’t be found in many other conferences.
