My name is Panagiotis Moumtsakis and I was born in the picturesque city of Kavala, currently living in Thessaloniki. As an undergraduate student at University of Macedonia, in the department of International and European Studies, specializing in politics and diplomacy I plan to pursue a MA in Public Opinion and Political Behavior in the future, which alongside with Comparative Politics and Political Philosophy consist my academic fields of interest. Thus my thesis is about youth political participation.
My first UN experience in model UN was as a second year university student, participating in ThessISMUN 2015. Since then, I have been consistently involved with model UN and participated in numerous simulations in national, regional and international level.
Outside the world of MUN, I completed my internship at the Jean Monnet Center of Excellence of the University of Macedonia, served as a member of the executive board of the Greek Association of Political and Economic Science (GRAPESS) for the period 2015-2017 and completed my short traineeship as a Political and Social Analyst in the activities of the Greek base of NATO Rapid Deployable Corps Greece. I am also the co-founder of “Διάλογος”, a municipal council simulation taking place in Kavala. In the near future, I intend to get an internship at the Embassy of Greece in London.
For SimUnesCO 2018, I wish to combine the high academic level of the conference with the lovely settings of the island and the wonderful nature of the participants in order to create an irresistible mixture that everyone should try! Last but not least, I am more than excited to welcome you to Corfu and determined to make this conference an amazing experience for you all!
