This guide will change your perspective on Model UN.
COM We wrote this guide for delegates who want to take their skills to the next level. These are fundamental skills that every delegate should learn, particularly new delegates. You need the fundamentals in order to participate fully in committee and do your job as a delegate. But award-winning delegates go beyond the fundamentals. They develop a distinguishing skillset skills that help them make a difference in committee.
Each chapter in this guide is about turning a fundamental skill into an award-winning skill: Chapter 1: Dont research prepare before the conference in a way that helps you walk into committee with confidence, Chapter 2: Dont speak inspire others with speeches and comments that make them think, I wish I said that, Chapter 3: Dont caucus connect delegates and ideas together in order to build a team, Chapter 4: Dont write empower teammates to draft a properlywritten and well-organized resolution, We assume that youve been to a few conferences.
Were not going to recite the rules of procedure were going to show you how to hack parli pro to your advantage. Were not going to explain what terms like caucus mean were going to invent a new language for Model UN. Were not going to teach you how to make speeches or write resolutions were going to share the principles of strong speeches and resolutions. And were not going to address crisis simulations or pre-written resolutions we assume that youre going to represent a country and write resolutions during the conference.
We are professional MUNers. The members of the Best Delegate team have attended and staffed over conferences combined. The delegates simulated a General Assembly and recommended that member states "establish an international control and development of atomic energy", "conclude a treaty on disarmament", that the UN adopt "a uniform system for citizenship of refugees", that the UN amend the charter to adopt a definition of aggression, and that nations "promote the reconstruction of devastated areas through economic assistance through the U.

In addition, recently the United Nations has spearheaded efforts to introduce new Model UN rules of procedure that are more closely aligned with those used by the actual UN. A secretariat is headed by a Secretary-General. Each committee usually has a chair also known as moderator or director , a member of academics department of the secretariat that enforces the rules of procedure and oversees the progression of debate within a committee.
A delegate may request the committee as a whole to perform a particular action; this is known as a motion.
Documents aiming to address the issue of the committee are known as resolutions and are voted upon when deemed acceptable by the dais of the committee.
In a formal debate, the staff maintains a list of speakers and the delegates follow the order written on the 'speaker list'. Speakers may be added to the speaker list by raising their placards or sending a note to the chair. During this time, delegates talk to the entire committee. They make speeches , answer questions, and debate on resolutions and amendments.
If there are no other motions, the committee goes back to formal debate by default. There is usually a time limit. In a moderated caucus, the committee goes into a recess and the rules of procedure are suspended. Anyone may speak if recognized by the chair. A vote on a motion is necessary to go into a moderated caucus.
There is a comparatively shorter time limit per speech. In an unmoderated caucus, the delegates informally meet with other delegates and the staff for discussions. Resolutions must go through a draft , approval by the dais, and consequent debate and modification.
Material issues of diplomacy and policy are also approached through a quasi-academic process. In preparation for a conference, topics are chosen for each committee, and typically, research and background guides called Study Guides are made available by the organizers of a conference for each committee.
Delegates of each committee are often expected to pre-formulate the position of the country or group they represent, based on these background guides, and submit the result of this preparation to their committee as a so-called Position Paper.
While several guides on the techniques of writing Position Papers, including templates and examples, are available,    no conferences publish their Study Guides, Position Papers or Resolutions. This is the difference between the parliament and the UN, distinguishing power struggle from diplomacy. Languages Placard for the United Kingdom in Spanish at the International Model United Nations of Buenos Aires MINUBA in Argentina Traditionally, English has been the official and working language of most conferences, but, as Model UN has become more popular around the world, and as conferences in countries such as the United States have sought to appeal to underrepresented minorities such as the Spanish -speaking community , committees using languages other than English, or which are bilingual , have become common.
Attire Nearly all Model United Nations conferences require delegates to wear Western business attire , as dressing professionally is an important way to show respect for the nation, organization, or individual one is representing, as well as for the rest of one's committee. An example for such a special committee that does not have a parallel in the actual United Nations which deals with a crisis is known as a 'Crisis Committee.
