Welcome to the NU International Relations Council!
The International Relations Council of Northeastern University (IRC) is a student group for all those interested in foreign policy, international affairs, and learning the skills of effective diplomacy and debate. Through participation in interactive simulations of the United Nations (UN), NATO, and the League of Arab States, IRC members learn firsthand the challenges of international diplomacy while developing strong public speaking and negotiation skills.
Membership in the IRC is open to students of all majors – we have members majoring in everything from Political Science and International Affairs to Engineering and Pharmacy — and everyone is able to play an active role in the club, regardless of your prior knowledge or experience with Model UN. In addition to the competitive Model NATO and Model Arab League simulations we attend in Boston, Washington, D.C., and South Carolina, we also host a number of conferences on campus for middle and high school students, as well as sponsor international-themed events here at Northeastern
