Philadelphia Convention

6-10 March 2017 ● Side Star Elegance Hotel ● #MUNTR2017


After the Independence War and Paris Treaty the Central American Government struggled to form tax and commerce regulations, which damaged the central authority. Delegates from Thirteen Colonies gathered in Philadelphia to draft the constitution of the newly formed United States of America. The Constitutional Convention (also known as the Philadelphia Convention or the Grand Convention at Philadelphia) witnessed debates on how to distribute legislative, executive and judiciary powers.
The Constitutional Convention marks one of the decisive moments in world history. It created the founding principles of the United States of America, which in return influenced the Western Hemisphere for the centuries to come.
The Philadelphia Convention is suitable for advanced participants. For inquiries participants can contact the Responsible Under-Secretary-General Ms. İrem Uysal via:
