How MUN Operates
At its true nature, MUN is an academic activity: In preparation for every conference, the participants conduct research, and compile their results into Study Guides, Position Papers, and eventually Draft Resolutions. The ability to hold a speech in front of an audience, intimate knowledge of Rules of Procedures, and diplomatic instincts are just as crucial to success at a conference.
The basic principles of Model United Nations remain the same anywhere it is held:
- Participants are assigned a UN Member State each. They assume the role of that country’s diplomats at the United Nations. The delegates represent the views and positions of countries allocated to them during the Model UN conference.
- The delegates research their country’s position on selected topics, paying particular attention to their country’s perspective on the topics discussed at the Model UN Conference. The topics are issues of global importance.
- The committee sessions are held in accordance with rules of procedure. The delegates present statements of their countries’ positions and debate and negotiate with the other delegates, both through formal and informal debate.
- A resolution is written, debated, negotiated and amended, in line with each country’s interests and in response to the debate. Votes are held on the resolution and the amendments. A final resolution is produced, which is acceptable to a majority of delegations and represents the final product of the meeting.
