Their unique international environment and outlook shapes global citizens and help the students to adapt to diversity and engage them in complex economic, political and social dynamics that go beyond borders and cultures.
UNINT offers an applied approach to the study of economics to the students. Their goal is to ensure that all the students graduate with an excellent understanding of mainstream economic theories and encourage the students to develop a proper understanding of the limitations of mainstream of those theories. At the same time, the work of faculty is fundamentally concerned with the application of economics to real world issues and reflecting real policy concerns. As such, students are encouraged to develop a deep understanding of particular countries and issues, based on concrete analysis of history, institutions, and political economy. This reflects a shared view within the faculty that economics should be rigorous, reflective and, fundamentally, useful.

Today, high school students joined Rome International Careers Festival participants in the International Careers Fair: Universities, Professionals and Associations from all over the world reached us in Rome in order to get in contact with youths who are willing to be part of that change. UNINT corridors were full of enthusiastic and excited students, and after having spoken with some of them I realized that they all had one thing in common: interest and desire in having a future in the international panorama.
World Food Program – Share the meal
We are so used to sharing information on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter that most of us have forgotten what the term ‘share’ actually means: to divide among a number of people a part or portion of something. The World Food Program, food assistance branch of the UN, is the leader in the global movement to achieve zero hunger in the world -one of the UN Agenda2030 goals. The humanitarian agency concerned with lack of food and hunger reaches around 80 million people per year, their charity activities are based 100% on donations and 90% of them are used to purchase food to be donated to those in need whilst the remaining 10% cover administration costs, making them the NPO with lowest administration costs in the world. Transparency, efficiency and sustainability are key words that define this non-profit organization, which believes that donations must be easy to make, otherwise why should someone donate? The answer and solution to this question and problem is given in a simple and easy way: why not donate through an app? Share the meal is an app which can be downloaded on every smartphone which allows you to “share your own meal” with kids in need. Finding out that 0.40 cents are enough to feed one kid for one whole day touched me on a personal level, and convinced me to download the app. Share the meal is an easy going and user friendly app. There are many different ways to donate money and the most interesting parts of it to me are the possibilities to create challenges for yourself and your group of friends and to get virtually in contact with members of the families which you are helping and supporting. In the era of Web 2.0, social media and technological revolution we have forgotten what sharing in real life actually means, but why not get back to the origins and share something which might actually help someone?
The day is nearly over and students are heading towards the exit doors, I can hear some of them speaking about how surprised and thrilled they are, but what counts the most is the look in their eyes. They look tired but satisfied, excited to find out what their near future will be like and ready to create their own path in this world. Maybe some of them will take part in some of the projects which were presented to them today, maybe not, but surely this day has changed the life and perspective of each of them.
Around 500 participants of all nationalities are gathering in this four days to debate on international issues and team up to find solutions, create resolutions and draft official international documents. Delegates, who participate in the Model United Nations are dived into ten different Committees and have the duty and the opportunity to represent another country different of the one of their nationality. During the enrolment process applicants can choose the country they wish to represent according to the availability of seats for that country at the moment of their request.
Ms. Mumbai, delegate of Kenyan nationality representing Ethiopia in the UN General Assembly, points out that interacting with people coming from other countries enables everyone to learn about them and build networks for a possible future career. Moreover, Ms. Njieri Kiunjri, Chair of the UNHCR, coming from Nairobi Kenya, recognizes the additional value of having a variety of cultures and nationalities represented within the Committee over which she is presiding. In fact, each delegate has the chance to interact with natives from the country he or she is representing during the simulation. In this way, by directly interacting with people coming from all over the world, each participant will acquire a deep understanding of several cultural backgrounds and understandings. This multicultural aspect helps in expressing the MUN spirit, which is to bring everyone understanding issues from another country’s perspective and exchange ideas. According to her, it is paramount to ask for representations and delegations coming from all over the world in order to foster a global understanding and the growth of one’s own perspective of other countries.
The whole organization of this event is also aimed at guaranteeing a truly international and multicultural experience. According to Dr. Daniela Conte, Executive Director of the association Giovani nel Mondo, the wide network of Universities and partners developed by the association in the last years helps to attract young people from all over the world. The association in collaboration with the Italian Ministery of Foreing Affairs offers support to each student coming from non-EU countries in the process of request of a visa. However, it is not always possible to guarantee everyone’s participation in the end. This is due to bureaucratic procedures which vary among the different embassies. As an example, this year all twenty applicants from Senegal have been denied their visa, therefore were not able to participate to the event.
Moreover, an issue arises with regard to the ways delegates express and show their national identity by wearing traditional clothes or bringing items typical of the countries they are representing. In Mr. Gonzales Galicia’s account, President of the Rome Model United Nations, everyone should be proud of their nationality, therefore wearing the traditional Mexican dress of the mariachi enables him to better show his origins and identity. Also Ms. Ms. Njieri Kiunjri maintains that it is a good idea to best represent one’s own country in order to allow everyone’s social growth. Finally, Ms. Daniela Conte supports the choice of those delegates who are wearing the traditional dresses of their countries. In fact, she adds that it is common practice within the meetings at the United Nations to wear national typical dresses, however it is forbidden to wear national flags. Therefore, it is important to find a right balance in expressing one’s national identity, while taking into account the fact that all countries must be considered as equals.

¿Por qué es Internacional el Festival de Carreras?
Aproximadamente 500 participantes de todas nacionalidades se juntan por estos cuatro días para debatir sobre problemas internacionales, encontrar soluciones, crear resoluciones y escribir documentos internacionales oficiales. Delegados que participan en la Simulación de las Naciones Unidas están divididos entre diez comités diferentes y tienen el deber y la oportunidad para representar a otro país, diferente al suyo. Durante el proceso de inscripción, solicitantes pueden escoger el país que quieren representar, según la disponibilidad de sillas abiertas para ese país en el momento de inscripción.
Sra. Mumbai, la delegada de Kenia que representa Etiopía en la asamblea general de las Naciones Unidas, señala que la interacción con gente que viene de otros países permite que todos aprendan de ellos y hagan conexiones para una carrera en el futuro. Sra. Njieri Kiunjri, la presidente de la ACNUR (La Agencia de la ONU para Refugiados) viene de Nairobi, Kenia y reconoce el valor adicional de tener una variedad de culturas y nacionalidades representadas en su comité. De hecho, cada delegado tiene la oportunidad de interactuar con nativos de los países que están representados. De esta manera, interactuando directamente con gente que viene de todo el mundo, cada participante adquiera un entendimiento profundo de varios antecedentes culturales. Este aspecto multicultural ayuda representar el espirito de la Simulación de las Naciones Unidas: Traer ideas y entendimientos de problemas del perspectivo de otros países e intercambiar ideas. Según Sra. Njieri Kiunjri, es esencial preguntar que venga la representación y delegación de todas las partes del mundo para promover el entendimiento global y el crecimiento de la perspectiva de otros países.
La organización de este evento también está dirigida a la garantía de una experiencia realmente internacional y multicultural. Según Dr. Daniela Conte, Directora Ejecutiva de la asociación Giovani nel Mondo, una amplia red de universidades y socios desarrollada por la asociación in los últimos años, ayuda atraer a gente joven de todas partes del mundo a la simulación. La asociación, en colaboración con la Ministra Italiana de Asuntos Exteriores, ofrece apoyo a cada estudiante que viene de un país que no está en la Unión Europea en el proceso de pedir una visa. Sin embargo no es posible siempre garantizar la participación de todos. Esto se debe a procedimientos burocráticos que varían entre diferentes embajadas. Por ejemplo, este año, los veinte solicitantes de Senegal no pudieron participar en el evento porque sus visas fueron negadas.
Además, un problema surge en relación a las maneras que delegados se expresan y enseñan sus identidades nacionales. Unos se ponen ropa tradicional o traen artículos típicos del país que representan. En el caso de Sr. Gonzales Galicia, el Director de la Simulación de las Naciones Unidas, todos deberían de ser orgullosos de sus nacionalidades, hasta se puso un traje de mariachi o charro, típico de México, para enseñar su origen e identidad. También la Sra. Njieri Kiunjri mantiene que es una buena idea representar a el país de uno mismo para el crecimiento social de todos. Finalmente, Sra. Daniela Conte apoya a los delegados que deciden ponerse ropa tradicional de sus países. De hecho, ella agrega que es una práctica común en las juntas de la ONU pero es prohibido vestirse con banderas nacionales. Por lo tanto, es importante encontrar un balance entre expresando la identidad nacional de uno, y tener en cuenta que todos los países deberían de ser considerados como iguales.

Around 2000 participants from 100 countries. More than 160 promoters from all over the world. 4 different simulations, seminars and many workshops for young people to chose from in order to develop further knowledge and gain insights in the fields of economics, politics and international relations, communication and journalism. The Executive Director of the association in charge of the organisation and planning of the Festival, Daniela Conte, proclaimed at her speech in the opening ceremony on the 24th of sarch at LUISS Guido Carli University of Rome, that this festival can be seen as “a journey of friendship, opportunities, challenges, hope and inspiration”. But what does the festival stand for exactly?
For the ninth time this year, young people from all around the world come to the “eternal city” of Rome to participate on the International Careers Festival 2018 from the 24th of March until the 27th of March 2018.The Festival, which has been initiated by the non-profit organisation Giovani nel Mondo with the RomeMUN in 2009 and later developed as it is today, stands for cosmopolitanism and interculturality.The whole festival consits in the RomeMUN, the Rome Business Game, the Rome Press Game and the International Careers Course.
In the Rome Model United Nations delegates have to represent a specific country in a committee, which has been assigned to each of the delegates before. The 10 committees deal with topics, for instance migration policy in Europe, quality education, the situation of refugees in the world and possible interventions to ensure global security by the nuclear disarmament. Besides, prestigious speakers are invited to present speeches regarding these various topics; for instance: Ambassadors, professors of the Rome University of International Studies.
Interculturalism and internationally are relevant topics in the Rome Buisiness Game, too. The Program Director, Luca Marco Giraldin Von Lahnstein, welcomed 1000 participants this year. Economists-to-be can exercise themselves in learning more about economic strategies, leading companies and resolving economical and political difficulties within a current expanding world. Hereby, the interest for intercultural issues, on which the whole festival stands for, can further be stimulated. The connection between economy and culture helps to widen one’s own horizon and opens the access to a cross-cultural and cross-cutting knowledge.
The Rome Press Game is the third simulation and focuses on journalism, international communication, interpretation and translation. Thus, the participants are asked to report on the International Careers Festival and write appropriate articles, record radio-broadcasts, and create and edit videos. During her speech at the opening ceremony, the Program Director of the Press Game, Shanti Kodituwakku Hettiarachchilage underlined the possibility to gain the so called soft skills which can only be developed in a multicultural environment while creating also interpersonal relationships.
Gaining international experiences, simulating the real working life, challenging oneself and testing one’s boundaries, improving one’s ability to work in a team, getting to know new people from different cultures- these are just some of the answers participants gave regarding their motivation to participate at the International Careers Festival.
Also the International Careers Fair, which is accompanied by 44 exhibitors, takes place at the Rome University of International Studies on Monday the 26th of March and Tuesday the 27th.
Within the fair, mock interviews, workshops, CV reviews and recruitment sessions are offered by the companies which take part, including "global players" like LIDL, UNICEF and UNESCO Giovani.
Through a wide range of tasks, the international level of participants, organisers and topics stress the original idea of the Festival to be an occasion where talent meets opportunity.
Eva Münster – Rome Press Game – Team 2
During these days, from the 24th to the 28th of March 2018, more than two thousands promising students from over one hundred countries gathered in Rome for the International Careers Festival, organized by the association Giovani nel Mondo. But when did this project really begin? And how did it develop?
Everything started in 2009, when the current President of the association Daniela Conte and her PhD colleagues decided to take a very difficult and complicated challenge, which has then led to the creation of one of the biggest NGO in Europe. She used to accompany students to the New York Model of United Nations. There, she realized that almost every country in the world held a simulation of the works of this international organization, except from Italy. As a result, she had the idea of reproducing a Model of United Nations in Rome, which took place for the first time in March 2010. During the following editions, the International Careers Festival introduced other opportunities beside the MUN, including the Rome Press Game and the Business Game as separate units and the International Careers Fair.
The main objective of the association was to give brilliant Italian students the opportunity to meet people from all over the world, share their ideas and opinions and improve their practical skills. In fact, Daniela and her collaborators realized that Italian universities provide excellent theoretical concepts to students, but sometimes they fail to introduce them into the real work world. It is at this point that Giovani nel Mondo intervenes in order to help young people to get in touch with international organizations and find their future career.
Founders also had to overcome setbacks during the development of this ambitious international project, which then turned into reality.
Although Rome is a wonderful city from an artistic and cultural point of view, it is also very complex, in particular for what the bureaucracy and the logistics concerns.
Moreover, at the beginning the funds were never enough, therefore the association was born thanks to volunteers who worked hard to achieve this goal. But not only were volunteers indispensable at the beginning, as nowadays they keep on collaborating with Giovani del Mondo, which can rely on a network of more than one hundred volunteers in Italy and two hundreds all over the world.
But the most important problem to solve still needs a solution, as Daniela Conte declared :<<The greatest difficulty was and is to make people understand the value of the festival>>
Anyway, besides all the difficulties they have to face, people who work for this project never gave up and realized their dream :<< It is an initiative that grew up from nothing and although it was difficult, I would do it over and over again. The satisfactions I received are much superior than the difficulties>> (Daniela Conte).
Nowadays, Giovani nel Mondo is a worldwide association and a point of reference for all those young people who want to enter the work world with the help of supporters and experts. In fact, the association delivers every year more than 1500 grants for promising students and put them in touch with international organizations through the festival itself and the internet site carriereinternazionali.com.
But what really matters is that students have the possibility to meet their peers in a stimulating and multicultural environment and live an experience they will remember for the rest of their lives.
As Jorge Alejandro Gonzalez Galicia, Program Director RomeMUN, said :<< Giovani nel Mondo creates love. It attracts people every year from all over the world because it is able to transmit a real sense of belonging>>.

Organization: UNHCR - United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, is one of the more embedded UN Agencies, directly involved in rescue and emergency operations all over the world.
n 1954, UNHCR won the Nobel Peace Prize for its groundbreaking work in Europe. But it was not long before we faced our next major emergency. In 1956, during the Hungarian Revolution, 200,000 fled to neighbouring Austria. Recognising the Hungarians as 'prima facie' refugees, UNHCR led efforts to resettle them. This uprising and its aftermath shaped the way humanitarian organisations would deal with refugee crises in the future. During the 1960s, the decolonisation of Africa produced the first of that continent's numerous refugee crises. We also helped uprooted people in Asia and Latin America over the following two decades. In 1981, we received a second Nobel Peace Prize for what had become worldwide assistance to refugees. The start of the 21st century has seen UNHCR help with major refugee crises in Africa , the Middle East and Asia. We have also been asked to use our expertise to help many internally displaced by conflict and expanded our role in helping stateless peaple. In some parts of the world, such as Africa and Latin America, the 1951 Refugee Convention has been strengthened by additional regional legal instruments. UNHCR now has more than 10,966 members of staff. We work in a total of 130 countries and our budget, which in its first year was USD $300,000, grew to USD $6.54 billion in 2016.
