What is Model United Nations?
Model United Nations is a simulation of committees of the United Nations. Participants are assigned the roles of diplomates from different countries and are debating specific topics according to the Rules and Procedures of the United Nations. This way participants acquire a better understanding of international politics, the working of the United Nations, and are learning about the values and principals of the United Nations.
