What this Guide can help students and organizers achieve
This Resource Guide for Model United Nations conferences comprises seven main sections, the issues contained in which speak directly to some of the most pressing challenges people face on a daily basis, such as corruption, organized crime and terrorism.
By including these topics in a Model United Nations simulation, organizers and students can deepen their knowledge of these issues and the intergovernmental bodies within the United Nations that regularly address these topics.
Furthermore, the Guide can help organizers to:
- Come up with new and interesting topics for Model United Nations conferences that cover crime prevention, criminal justice and other aspects of the rule of law;
- Pick and choose the most appropriate intergovernmental bodies within the United Nations to simulate given a certain topic, bringing variety to the Model United Nations;
- Draft their own rules of procedures for these bodies, adapted from the rules used in the United Nations context;
- Find resources to deepen their knowledge of issues relating to the rule of law.
