  • So…you are in a discussion debating a certain topic but you have to ask yoursef..why? Why are you debating this topic? Why are you spending your time discussing this?What are you working towards? What do you want to achieve? Whenever you enter an argument or discussion, you should be looking for a solution that satisfies both parties.
  • A draft resolution must gain the support of a certain number of member states in the committee before the sponsors may submit it to the chairThe director will read the draft resolution to ensure that it is relevant and in proper format. Once accepted, the document is assigned a number and can be referred to in formal debate.
  • Sponsors of a draft resolution are the authors and agree with its substance. Although it is possible to have only one sponsor, this rarely occurs at the UN, since countries must work together to create widely agreeable language in order for the draft resolution to pass. Sponsors control a draft resolution and only the sponsors can approve immediate changes.Signatories are countries that may or may not agree with the substance of the draft resolution but still wish to see it debated so that they can propose amendments.
  • The heading shows the committee and topic along with the resolution number. It also lists the draft resolution’s sponsors and signatories The preamble and operative sections then describe the current situation and actions that the committee will take.
