Position Papers

A position paper is a one-page statement of a country’s policy on topic areas on the committee’s agenda. This is in essence a statement of what your state wants to accomplish in the UN simulation. It usually includes 1) Your state’s position on the topic; 2) Your state’s history relating to the issue[s]; 3) Areas where your state might be willing to negotiate; and 4) Sometimes includes a little background of the issue if you have space.

Position papers are required for the conference. To be eligible for an award, position papers must be submitted by October 13, 2023. Writing position papers enhances the quality of preparation of delegates and helps to focus their thoughts on the topic areas.
