A description about what Model United Nations (MUN) is all about.

Model United Nations basically is a simullation of international conference among diplomats and the other state leaders. More or less it simulates the process of conference in United Nations (and some other council, such as European Union, ASEAN Regional Forum, and so on). And that is why it is called Model United Nations (MUN).

In MUN, there will be the delegates representing a country and also there will be the Board of Directors (which will be acting as director, moderator and rapporteur also excel table). There will be topic area(s) to be discussed in order to get a final resolution to solve the problem being discussed and debated.

A delegate needs to submit a position paper before the conference is held and deliver their own national interest to be heard and later be counted on the final resolution. A skill of negotiating, diplomacy manner (including speech and gesture) and a comprehensive understanding about the substance are the qualifications that are aimed to be achieved by experiencing MUN. At the end, there will be some awards, such as The Best Delegate, The Most Outstanding Delegate, Honourable Mention and The Best Position Paper.

Since MUN is getting well-known day by day, I hope this article could give you a slight information about MUN in general.
