Introduction to the Model United Nations.
United Nations Association of the United States of America, New York, NY.
This publication is designed to introduce students and teachers to the Model United Nations experience. The Model United Nations is a simulation of the United Nations (U.N.) system in which students assume the roles of ambassadors to the U.N. and debate the current issues on the U.N.'s agenda. This guide is organized into three chapters. The first chapter is an overview of the United Nations system, followed by an exploration of how the Model U.N. relates to the world organization. The second chapter takes the reader through the steps of the Model U.N. experience describing how to prepare, role-play, and evaluate the experience. Finally, the third chapter provides lists of U.N. and Model U.N. materials and resources that can be acquired by those interested in becoming further involved in Model U.N. events, conferences, and programs.
