Have you ever seen politicians squabble on TV, and thought to yourself, "I could do a much better job, if only I had this kind of power"? IITG MUN gives you the chance to see for yourself.
The United Nations Organization (UNO/UN) is an international body designed to facilitate dialogue between nations. The topics under deliberation vary widely; from managing the economy to preventing war, from empowering women to protecting the environment - essentially, any issue that can be mitigated or settled by a governmental policy.
The UN comprises of multiple committees, each geared towards addressing a certain variety of issues; for example, The United Nations Security Council deals with threats to international peace. Each committee has a list of member nations, and each nation on the list is invited to send one representative, called a delegate, to express the views of his or her nation within that committee.
The MUN, or The Model United Nations, is a simulation of the actual UN. Participants pretend to represent a nation, and come together to discuss the very same issues being debated upon in the UN. This gives a normal person the opportunity to know what it's like to stand for something more than him/herself, and to experience the complicated verbal dance that politicians and delegates take part in every day.
The MUN is a conclave for ideation by the fresh minds of our nation, to brainstorm solutions to problems plaguing our world. Participants learn to work through the tenuous relationships between nations as they deliberate towards a resolution - and they get to look nice in a suit and tie while they do it.
1. As a Delegate
2. As an Executive Board Member
Every committee is overseen by a group of two to four people called the executive board.
This group functions as a mediator or invigilator, to ensure that the discussion remains on topic, and to settle any issues between dele 42 gates that interfere with the course of debate.
3. As an International Press Member
Just like there is media coverage of UN meetings, there is mock media coverage of MUN meetings.
It is the job of the International Press to report as well as question and comment upon the proceedings taking place within the commit- tee walls. In doing so, it may very well alter the direction of the debate.
The participant applications will be out three months before the conference commences.
All applications will be web-based and will be available on the website (www.iitgmun.org).
The agendas of the committees will be communicated before the applications are opened.
The Rules of Procedure and Background Guides will be made avail- able a month in advance of the conference
Registrations will start in September
