Q: What is the letter of motivation?
A: This is where you can tell us why you are interested in joining MUNTUM e.V.

Please upload a .pdf file!

Q: What is a political statement?
A: A political statement is a small document in which you comment or analyze a certain political situation you are interested in. You don’t need to be a political sciences student, just have thoughts you can formulate coherently.
Examples:

  • The evolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict
  • Why is the Paris Treaty necessary?
  • Brexit and its impact on Germany
  • The role of the UN as a mediator and peacekeeper – successes, failures and challenges
