Model United Nations

by Louis Guglielmo

 

Model United Nations or Model UN is an amazing academic opportunity for high school, and even middle school students. The program in a nutshell is a simulation of the proceedings of the United Nations organization, It is a program that raises student awareness in all avenues of world affairs including but not limited to, Disarmament, Trade, International Sovereignty, International Disputes, Sanctions, Development, Peacekeeping, Regional Relations, and the fostering of peace and diplomacy throughout the world.

Students research and prepare positions on a specific country’s policy, as well as specific topics assigned to them. Major universities traditionally sponsor conferences; although a large number of small-regional high school competitions are becoming quite popular. Also participation in Model UN is not limited to attending a sponsored event. Quite often, schools organize their own meetings and discussions as a way of introducing their students to the process.

This manual is designed to examine all the nuances and subtleties to getting your own Model UN chapter off the ground, or turning your existing program into a nationally recognized award winner.
