Dutch United Nations Student Association (DUNSA/SIB)

The Dutch United Nations Student Association (DUNSA, also known as SIB Leiden) is an organisation that focuses on international relations. They organise international dinner parties, movie nights, lectures and forums. Each year they organise several trips abroad. The organisation is partially composed of theme groups, each with a different focus. For example, they have ones that focus on development issues or international organisations and ones that focus on specific continents. Many of the activities are in English and international students pay half the annual membership.
