Model United Nations is an authentic simulation of the UN General Assembly, UN Security Council, or other multilateral body, which introduces students to the world of diplomacy, negotiation, and decision making.
At Model UN, students step into the shoes of ambassadors of countries that are members of the UN, from Argentina to Zimbabwe. The students, better known as “delegates”, debate current issues on the organization’s vast agenda. They prepare draft resolutions, plot strategy, negotiate with supporters and adversaries, resolve conflicts, and navigate the UN’s rules of procedure – all in the interest of resolving problems that affect the world.
Two committees (UN General Assembly and United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC)) of the Model United Nations would be hosted. Participants would be placed in 1 of the 2 committees and assigned countries, or occasionally other organizations, where they represent members of that body. They will presented with their assignments in advance, along with a topic or topics that their committee will discuss. They ll formulate positions that they will then debate with their fellow delegates in the committee, staying true to the actual position of the member they represent. At the end of a conference, the best-performing delegates in each committee, as well as delegations, will be recognized with awards.
Each committee would have two judges known as the chair and vice-chair. Applications would open for the position of Co-chair too. The applicants with the maximum experience would be selected as the Chair and Vice-Chair for the committees
Only individual applications will be accepted, no team registrations. All undergraduate, graduate as well as school students are eligible to apply. Based on the number of seats available, the applications and their preferences, applicants will be assigned their commitees as well as countries they represent. The rules of the debate are as follows:
Formal Debate: During formal debate, the staff maintains a speakers list and delegates speak in the order they are listed. At this time, delegates have an opportunity to share their views with the entire committee. Delegates make speeches, answer questions, and introduce and debate resolutions and amendments.
Moderated Caucus: A moderated caucus is a mixture of both formal and informal debate. Anyone may speak if they raise their placard and are called on by the Chair.
Unmoderated Caucus: In an unmoderated caucus, delegates meet informally with one another and the committee staff to discuss and negotiate draft resolutions, amendments and other issues.
All participants must fill the google form sent with the confirmation mail to ensure that they are alotted countries for the event.
No part of the event will be held before Vista. Only online applications would be opened, based on which the final contestants would be chosen.
