In a Model United Nations conference, participants play the role of country ambassadors in specific United Nations committees to debate issues affecting society today. Before the conference, delegates research on their assigned country’s stand with reference to specific issues, and are expected to navigate within their assigned country’s limitations in their diplomatic conduct with other countries during the conference. Through speeches, negotiating with other delegates and writing draft resolutions, delegates attempt to craft viable solutions to controversial international problems. Thus students are exposed to a wide spectrum of valuable skill sets – as well as broadening their knowledge of international and current affairs, they also learn how to draft policy papers, acquire communication skills in negotiation and compromise, and develop greater confidence in public speaking.
