Hi everybody and welcome to MUNOTH 2019! I am Marjolein Bonsen, the Under-Secretary-General of Promotion for MUNOTH 2019. Let me introduce myself to you!
I am currently finishing the master Public International Law in leiden and I will start the master Constitutional- and Administrative law in February. For my current master I am writing a thesis about the applicability of rules of international humanitarian law and international human rights law on non-state actors. A topic that has a lot to do with the theme of our conference: International peace & security: humanitarian aid and justice.
I am very passionate about the protection of human rights. That why, next to my study, I work at the legal department of Vluchtelingenwerk (‘refugeework’), and as front office employee for municipalities. When I am not studying or working, I love to play hockey and to travel to discover new cultures and get to know people from all over the world.
As USG for Promotion, I will be in charge of the social media accounts, website and student ambassadors. I will do the best I can to get as many motivated students as possible to join our conference in April! We are going to make it the best MUNOTH conference yet. Hope to see you all there!
