Welcome to UNASMUN 2015! With over 480 participants from over 40 schools in Singapore, the fifth edition of the United Nations Association of Singapore Model United Nations (UNASMUN) is our biggest conference yet.
These are the three things you should do to prepare for UNASMUN:
1. Check your country and committee allocations: Search
the allocation document (in addition, if you are in the Syrian crisis simulation, your allocations and the information pack will be published on November 15) to check the country and committee you have been assigned to.
There are three tracks:
i. Committees for first-timers (DISEC, SOCHUM, ECOSOC, HRC, and WHO);
ii. Specialised committees for those with experience at one or more conference(s) (SPECPOL, AU, and LON);
iii. The crisis committee (the Syrian Crisis).
2. Read your study guides: There are study guides for each issue on the agenda. Some of the study guides have been published, and the remaining study guides will be up on the same page by November 15.
3. Prepare the documents:
i. If you are a delegate in DISEC, SOCHUM, ECOSOC, HRC, or WHO,
complete page three of this document (in PDF) – use this document to start your own research of your assigned country, before moving on to the study guides;
ii. If you are a delegate in SPECPOL, the AU, or LON, prepare two position papers (one for each issue on the agenda);
iii. If you are a delegate in the Syrian Crisis simulation, follow the instructions provided in the information pack, which will be published on November 15 – an additional email will also be sent to you.
All documents should be sent to the respective committee chairs by December 8. When submitting your document, please name your file as “UNASMUN_Committee_Country.docx” (or .pdf), and send it to both chairs in your committee.
