What is DIRA?
DIRA stands for Duke International Relations Association. We are Duke University's premier student organization focusing on Model United Nations and the advancement of international relations on campus and beyond.
What do we do?
DIRA puts on two conferences per year: the Duke University Model United Nations Conference (DUMUNC) for high school students and the Duke International Security Conference (DISCON) for college students. We also have a competitive Away Team which competes on the collegiate circuit. Finally, we publish Borderless Magazine, a biannual journal that showcases student voices on international relations, multiculturalism, and foreign policy.
