Chairs

Erwann Mingant

Aqib Khalique

Currently in a Master’s degree of Human Resources and Project Management at Sciences Po Rennes, Erwann joined this university in 2013. His interest in international policy and negociation led him immediately to join the MUN society for the university, BATNA. After two years in Rennes, he spent a semester working for a start up in London as Human Resources assistant.
He participated in the 2013 and 2014 editions of the MUN conference of Rennes, the SPRIMUN, along with the PragueMUN and NottsMUN in 2015. In 2016, his MUN experience took a turn as he chaired four different committees in four different conferences: PragueMUN, MUN France, SPRIMUN and MIMUN. He is now the Secretary General for the 2017 edition of the Sciences Po Rennes International Model United Nations.
He is a proud Frenchman and loves to remind everyone of that fact. In his spare time, he enjoys the occasional game of Cards Against Humanity and a glass of red wine with some cheese. His favourite reading material is divided between (but not limited to) Agatha Christie, Marcel Pagnol and Terry Pratchett.
As the chair for the IAEA at PragueMUN 2017, he is certain that he and Aqib will ensure a stimulating and fun debate for everyone! This committee represents a challenge for every single delegate and he is sure that they will be able to manage every inquiry the delegates may have. He is looking forward to meet you all!
