History

The history of IMZMUN dates back to the 1940s and the Montana International Relations Club (or its German name Klub für internationale Verständigung). Articles from the Alumni magazine Montana Blatt from the 1940s and 1950s show that the Montana International Relations Club intended to improve the tolerance and understanding between students from different cultural backgrounds in the spirit of the newly founded United Nations.

The IMZMUN still fulfils a similar purpose by letting students put themselves in the situation of representing UN Member States other than their own home countries. This should foster an understanding of why countries may have diametrically different opinions on matters and hence the understanding of the sources of international tension.
