Study guides will be published approximately a month ahead of the conference. They shall assist delegates in their preparation and introduce them to the most important aspects of the topics on the agenda.
The United Nations
You can find some material on the basic working principals of the UN and its various bodies under the following links:
- United Nations Charter
- Chart representing the UN system with bodies and website links (version 1, version 2)
- Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Rules of Procedure
ZuMUN uses the Harvard WorldMUN Rules of Procedure. They can be downloaded here.
Position Papers should be submitted to your respective committee e-mail address (announced here in due time) by the deadline specified by here, too. A guide on how to write a Position Paper and what aspects should be included can be downloaded here.
Writing Working Papers and Draft Resolutions
Writing Model United Nations Working Papers and Draft Resolutions needs some practice, both content-wise and format-wise. In order to support delegates in this task, we provide them a comprehensive guide including the most important formality rules, relevant content aspects that need to be paid attention to and finally some sample resolutions written by our delegates at past conferences. A pre-formated resolution template is available here.
