Two Model UN (MUN) Workshops are being organized by the United Nations Department of Public Information (UNDPI) this summer. The first will be held from 8–11 July 2013 in partnership with the United Nations Information Service (UNIS) in Vienna and the United Nations Youth and Student Association of Austria (UNYSA-Austria). The second will be held from 26-29 August 2013 at UN Headquarters in New York.The workshops will focus on giving MUN organizers a basic understanding of the Rules and Procedures of the General Assembly, the discussion and action phases of General Assembly Committee meetings, what you need to know when drafting resolutions, the duties and responsibilities of the UN Secretariat and General Assembly officials, the Security Council Rules and Procedures, and more.
There is no registration fee for students or faculty advisors who are eligible to attend the 2013 MUN Workshops. However, once accepted, participants will be responsible for all travel and living costs during the four-day workshops.
The call for applications to both workshops will be announced soon.
