Hi Everyone . You know, I recently got an opportunity to take part in the Model United Nation (MUN) which happened in India. For people who don’t know, A Model United Nation is stimulation of the ‘REAL’ United Nation Organisation.
It was one of the best experience in my life . I really got to feel what it is like to be a delegate sitting and creating one resolution for all the nations and working together as one. Got to meet different people in the from various countries (mainly from India). The MUN was held in Agra, Jaypee Hotel. The simulation has also taken place in different countries like New York, Brazil, Thailand, UAE etc.
Today I am going to give you a some information that will be helpful in a simulation .
Simulation is done in for 3 bodies
a. The United Nation General Assembly
The General Assembly (GA) is the main body of the United Nation and there are 6 other committee :
- First Committee
- Second Committee
- Third Committee
- Fourth Committee
- Fifth Committee
- Sixth Committee
b. The United Nation Security Council (SC)
c. The United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC)
There are more organs in the UN, but only 3 of these organs have been used in the MUN.
In the MUN people represents country based on their agenda / topic and bring forth their issues faced by the country. To solve all the problems of each and every nation, the delegates create a resolution so that all the countries can agree to it with their own will.
To address the country’s issues it is necessary to create a speech for 1 minute. The speech is usually done in the first committee session.
To tell the speech in your committee session is your choice. If you want address the your country’s issue to your fellow delegates it is necessary to submit a position paper
That all for today. Want to know more about MUN and UN ? Come see my next post in June.
