WHAT IS A MUN?
A simulation of the United Nations:
• A country to represent, allocated to each delegation … other
than their own state!
• In a specific committee (2 members of each delegation in
each committee: UNESCO, GA, etc.)
• A specific issue to tackle
• Purpose: the writing of a resolution (=set of
recommendations to « solve » the problem)
• How? Through negotitation with representatives of other
states … while respecting one’s own country’s position!

BEFORE THE
SIMULATION
• Weekly meetings aiming to
prepare the delegates to a MUN,
through specific lessons
• Choice of Committees and partner
allocation
