Rules of Procedure

Model UN Preparation

Like real UN bodies, Model UN committees have lengthy agendas and many delegates who want to convey their country’s positions. To help maintain order, Model UN conferences adopt rules of procedure to establish how or when a delegate may speak and what the delegate may say. Some conferences adopt a few simple rules, while others use lengthy and complex rules of procedure. Because each conference is independent there is no governing body for Model UN rules of procedure which causes them to vary. It is essential to familiarize yourself with the rules of each specific conference you plan to attend.

The UN Charter

The UN was formed to act like a war deterrent against another world war. It has slowly evolved from having a few member states to having over 190 members countries. The UN charter was signed in 1945 at the end of the Second World War. The charter is composed of a total of 111 articles that outline the workings of the UN. A model UN also follows the same articles in its workings.
