A Guide to Delegate Participation, 1992-93.
Muldoon, James P., Jr., Ed.
This publication is designed to help students prepare for participation in Model United Nations activities. A Model U.N. conference simulates the activities of a United Nations body, usually the Security Council or the General Assembly and its committees. Participants assume the roles of representatives of Member States to the United Nations (U.N.) and consider items from the U.N. System's agenda. Organized into five chapters, the guide's first chapter provides background information on the United Nations and the nature of multilateral diplomacy. The second chapter contains information about preparing for a Model U.N. conference. The third chapter, which comprises much of the book, is designed to introduce the reader to the major issues and problems faced by six regions of the world--Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and North America. Chapter four contains the voting records and selected resolutions of the 46th General Assembly. Finally, chapter five contains items for reference: an annotated bibliography, the Charter of the United Nations and Statute of the International Court of Justice, and the Permanent Missions to the United Nations.
