While you wait for the conference
# 5 Research your topic
The next step is to try and find out as much as you can about your topic. The UN and government websites are often the most reliable and valuable sources.
*You may be asked to present your sources in the conference
# 6 Work on your position paper
If this is the first time you are writing a position paper, we suggest you look up some samples on the internet.
There is no secret formula to a good position paper, however, here is a brief skeleton that might help you
Paragraph 1: Brief introduction to your country and clear statement of your country's position on the topic
Paragraph 2: How the issue impacts your country and other countries
paragraph 3: What steps has your country/ the UN taken in the past to address the issue
Paragraph 4: What do you suggest should be done/ What do you expect from the commitee's resolution/ potential solutions
#7 Review your position paper
We acknowledge the fact that a position paper is not an English essay, however the use of informal register shall not be condoned. We suggest you have your English teacher, or a friend go through your position paper before you submit it.
It is also mandatory for you to mention your Name, Your school Name, The Name of your country and add your country's Flag/ emblem in the position paper.
Please refer to your self as the "delegate of" you country and refrain from using personal pronouns.
The position paper can be between 1-2 pages long, in Times New Roman font size 12.
The delegate must include the references at the end which is a list of all the sources that the delegate has used for the data presented in the position paper.
Email your position paper to your chairs before midnight on September 1st 2015
#8 Preparing for the conference
Before the conference, ensure that you are aware of the rules of procedure and have researched your topic and country thoroughly.
Delegates will not be permitted to use any technological equipment including cell phones and laptops during moderated caucuses, so we recommend you print the data you will need and organize it into a folder.
