Become a Delegate

The aim of this workshop is to prepare the student delegation for representing the actual political interests of a specific country in the various UN committees (e.g. Security Council, WHO, UNHCR). In these committees, students will debate according to the UN Rules of Procedure. Students will also have the opportunity to enhance their speech and presentation skills. Since preparation for the trip will be organized by students, regular and active participation is expected. Students must be prepared to participate in organizing, planning and fundraising for the trip. As the number of delegates attending the conference is limited, the workshop will be restricted to 20-22 participants.

The workshop will be held in English to prepare for committee sessions at the conference; therefore good English skills are required. Please note that the workshop includes 2 block sessions on weekends and two compulsory attendances of local Model United Nations event, namely the Hohenheim Castle Model United Nations 2009 (in early December 2009) and the Tübingen Model United Nations 2010 (February 2010) which will also be organized by the student delegation. The workshop further includes a voluntary ‘field trip' to either Vienna or Geneva in order to visit a number of UN organizations.

Important: The workshop may only be attended in combination with seminar 68 "United Nations System: Politics and Policies" taught by Prof. Dr. Andreas Hasenclever. In order to clarify who is interested in the seminar only and who is interested in both the seminar and the workshop, you can register individually for the workshop on Campus.
