Your Guide to Model United Nations
From the introduction:
Model United Nations (MUN) is a bit like a secret club. Once you attend a conference for the first time and become acquainted with the world of MUN, you become an “insider.” You find yourself attending conference after conference to try to appease your appetite for world politics, resolution passing, and unmoderated caucus. You learn the in’s and out’s of being an expert delegate and start Facebook groups after every conference. Once you’re in, you’re in.
However, to an outsider who has never participated in MUN before, everything may seem intimidating and hopelessly complex. MUN culture has evolved to include its own personality, strategy, and lingo (what does the term “dilatory” mean again?). It is our hope that this guidebook will help introduce the world of MUN for all students to enjoy. Even if you’re not new to MUN, we have included more advanced topics and content for all skill levels. We have designed it to be clear, concise, and fun to read, all the while being thorough and extensive in its coverage. We like to consider it as the definitive MUN guide.
