MUNUC MUN 101
Model UN can come with a steep learning curve, with all of its jargon and complexities. To help you make the most of your conference experience, experienced MUNUC members have put together a series of introductory resources, and we encourage you to browse through them if you’re looking for an orientation to MUN or a refresher about how a committee works. If you have specific questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to your committee executives via email!
Gearing Up for Conference
BACKGROUND GUIDES AND UPDATE PAPERS
Background guides and update papers are available on your committee page. We strongly recommend reading these documents before conference in order to get a sense of what your committee’s topics are all about.
RULES OF PROCEDURE
The Rules of Procedure are the protocols that each committee will follow, to structure debate and keep discussion productive and orderly. Download a copy of MUNUC’s Rules of Procedure for your reference.
A position paper summarizes the problem at hand from the perspective of your assigned country or delegation and proposes solutions that your country would support. Each delegation should write one paper per topic. For delegates in double-delegate committees, only one paper must be submitted and should be worked on by both delegates. Position papers are due February 1, 2021 for MUNUC online and Friday, April 9, 2021 for MUNUC 33.
