MODEL UNITED NATIONS

“More than ever before in human history, we share a common destiny. We can master it only if we face it together. And that is why we have the United Nations.” 
 

Model United Nations is a simulation of the United Nations Organization. Delhi Public School, Pune had the privilege of conducting a Model United Nations for students of classes VIII to XI on February, 5 2016. The students were divided into various committees and an agenda for the committee was decided well in advance and students came prepared for the day.


The various parliamentary procedures of the UN were followed in all the committees. The different phases of the committee like the speakers list, moderated caucus, unmoderated caucus, preparing working papers and voting were carried out with the help of the Chairs of the committees. United Nations Security Council: The delegates were actively thinking on this burning issue of the world and came up with suggestions like the membership of the states supporting ISIS should be suspended, ethical hacking for prevention of abuse of social media. Special political and decolonization committee: The refugee crisis which hit Europe recently was thoroughly discussed and the students questioned each country about their responsibility in resolving the crisis. The various committees and the agendas were: 

Counter terrorism committee: Strengthening cyber security prevention of poverty and other factors. Disarmament and International Security Council: Discussed about the need for establishing a world peace order. Human rights Council: Women’s right with emphasis on the modern society was a topic where the Arab states found themselves in a difficult situation.



The session came to an end after each committee formed blocs and each bloc prepared a working paper which was then put to vote. The Model United Nations gave an opportunity for students to enhance their speaking and debating skills. It helped them in accepting an opposition and then to negotiate with the other delegates. The delegates thoroughly enjoyed the session and said they were looking forward for another fruitful one in the next academic session.
