Write Position Paper at MUN Many Model UN conferences require delegates to submit “Position Papers� on their topics before a conference starts to demonstrate their research and knowledge. Position Papers are normally 1-2 pages per topic, and should have 3-4 paragraphs. They should be written from the perspective of the government of your country, include a header, and answering the following questions. Heading Committee: [Your Committee Title] Topic: [Your Topic] Country: [Your Country] School: [Your School] Topic Background What is the definition of the topic? Where does the topic take place? Who is involved? How many people does it affect? Where, and in what ways? Why is this topic important?

Do any major Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) work on this topic? Country Policy How has this topic impacted your country? What has your country tried to do about this topic?

Protocols during MUN Session Judging the quality of position paper chair will select the delegate for opening speech. During moderated caucus delegates must raise their placard and wait for the chair to call on them to speak. This time delegates can speak for 1 minute but they will be chosen by the chair. During moderated caucus delegates can engage the audience by seeking their opinion, by referring to any statistical record or story, they can quote any great person’s remark. During moderated caucus delegates directly engage in a debate with other delegates or they can convince the committee with their own solution. During unmoderated caucus delegates directly engage in group activities and they can move around the tables to win the support of other delegates and collectively and fairly they will reach a resolution. Unmoderated caucus will not be governed by any protocol . Delegates will have to write their final resolution in a piece of paper. Resolution must have the support of 20% of the signatories.


How to write a Resolution Committee: General Assembly Topic: your topic Sponsors: name of country which delegate represents himself or name of other countries who helped to write the content part of the resolution Signatories: name of supporting countries A resolution consists of two main paragraph: Preambular paragraph and operative paragraph. Preambular paragraph describes why UN has taken this issue for discussion. It must be written using preambular phrases like ‘bearing in mind/affirming/acknowledging/guided by/fully aware of /taking into consideration/regretting etc. Operative phrases: operative paragraph may begin with recommends that/demands that/resolves that/approves that/believes that/calls attention to/condemns that etc. Now write your points or final solution and keep it in mind that your solution should not go against your own country’s policy.
