JECRC MODEL UNITED NATIONS
JECRC MUN is a one of its kind event aimed at educating the participants about current events of International importance and giving them a perspective on International relations, diplomacy and the agenda of the UN. This year we pride ourselves at the prospect of bringing together over the pressing issues that are faced by the international community today.
JECRCMUN is yet another major achievement its students. The idea emerged from the minds of two lone munners in the college. They took a stand and gave Jaipur its first Model United Nations. It gives us immense pleasure to announce that it would be second MUN ever in Rajasthan after BITS Pilani.
The idea was already there in the minds of these people. And they actually gave a thought to it during the month of Feb, somewhere between 10th to 15th Feb. And, eventually as the idea came in to existence, they started working on it from 16th Feb. It will be held on 13-14th March 2012 in JECRC campus.
About Model United Nations
Model United Nations is an academic simulation of a United Nations Conference to make people aware of the international issues prevalent today and to emphasize the important role that a body like the UN plays in resolving them.
The participants role-play as diplomats representing a nation or NGO in a simulated session of an organ (committee) of the United Nations, such as the Security Council or the General Assembly. Participants research a country, take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult, and then develop solutions to world problems. More recently, simulation of other deliberative bodies, such as the United States National Security Council, has been included in Model United Nations, even if they are completely unrelated to the UN or international affairs as a whole. In general, the participants that the executive panel considers to be most contributing are given awards, such as 'Best Delegate award'.
MUN India is a social enterprise, the foundations of which are laid upon the aspirations of the youth to be instrumental in changes long overdue which are essential for society to evolve. We seek to create a band of socially and politically aware youth committed towards fighting the injustices that prevail and seek to provide a forum for the deliberation of the issues that plague society.
Vision of JecrcMUN
Model UN conferences have the potential to tap this infinite source of energy. We believe that delegates can do better than just generic sets of resolutions and come out with solutions that are not only innovative but also practical.
We believe that given the right impetus, and the right direction, young minds cannot just discuss and deliberate, but also unravel solutions otherwise impossible to consider. We aim to generate awareness amongst the youth with regard to the geopolitical scenario around us, with the hope that an aware youth will make the right electoral choices.
During a conference, participants must employ a variety of communication and critical thinking skills in order to represent the policies of their country. These skills include public speaking, group communication, research, policy analysis, active listening, negotiating, conflict resolution, note taking, and technical writing. However, school delegation formats vary from region to region.
In the early days of Model United Nations, participants were mostly students at select colleges in the United States of America. Today, Model United Nations has greatly matured and expanded. It is now practiced all over the world in classes, clubs, and conferences. Model United Nation participants are elementary, secondary, undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students. Recently even university alumni and professionals have taken part. Participants come from public and private schools and universities, and they live in city, suburban and rural areas.
The JECRC Model United Nations Conference strives to provide delegates with an experience that is both educational and enjoyable. Although we do not wish to create an overly competitive environment, but the award is to encourage the best delegate. A successful delegate will show some of the following characteristics:
• Shows thorough knowledge of committee topics
• Remains in line with national policies
• Demonstrates ability to work with other delegates effectively
• Exhibits flexibility in pursuit of an international compromise
• Position papers reflect outstanding research
• Overall performance is of remarkable quality
A position paper(sometimes known as a Policy Statement) is an essay that is written by participants of some models. It describes the detailed position of a certain country on a topic or issue that the writer will debate in his or her committee. Position papers are not always required, but certain conferences mandate that each delegate send his own before the opening. It is also known as the (Foreign) Policy Statement or (F) PS.
Conferences have different format and styles for position papers. Nevertheless UNA-USA established a format that has been adopted widely throughout the Model UN community. However, in Latin America the alternative TINK format, developed by of Argentina, is used.
In Either way, most position papers consist of a heading with committee, topic, country and delegate information and body which explains in detail the position of the author's country. The position paper usually includes several pages outlining:
Position papers should explain an issue from their country's point of view. It is also good practice that they include statistics about the issue that would support the cause they defend. The paper would also try to convince the other countries of the committee to their view of the issue. It would have ways to solve the situation.
Many conferences require delegates to submit a copy of their position paper, as a means to ensure that the delegates research important topics and construct strong and well-informed positions on those subjects, yet presentation is still a valuable component.
