BIMUN/SINUB e.V.: Lecture Series “Refuge / Migration / Integration”

Since 2002, the work of BIMUN/SINUB e.V. also encompasses other fields of activities in addition to the organization of our annual conference. In cooperation with several partners, a weekly lecture series at Bonn University has been established by members of BIMUN/SINUB e.V. Under the overall title ‘The International Bonn’, this lecture series takes place every semester.

The main focus of our lecture series is to inform the interested public and students of Bonn University about current issues of international concern. At the same time, we would like to provide deeper insight into the diverse international scenery in Bonn. Therefore, we offer a platform to international organizations that wish to actively raise public awareness, introduce themselves and their work and spark a public debate.


The BIMUN/SINUB lecture series is part of the ’Studium Universale‘ at the University of Bonn and can be accepted as a component for the Certificate of International Competence if attended regularly.
