Delegate Prepares Draft Resolution
Before the Conference starts all delegates should have a draft resolution on the issues on the agenda.
The Research Reports published on our website have been divided, each main issue has three subtopics. Each main issue will be lobbied at specific times and the lobby groups will be based on the subtopic choice of the delegate. Therefore, delegates will be debating resolutions per main issue, each one focusing on a different aspect.
Lobbying is perhaps the most important part of the THIMUN Conference, as it is when fruitful discussions take place to create the best resolutions possible. Good resolutions with viable solutions are to be produced as a result of lobbying.
This year, delegates will have individualised lobbying time for each main issue on the agenda. Policy statements in Committees, Sub-commissions and ECOSOC will start after the preparatory meetings, They will then move on to lobbying for issue 1 and 2, and continue on Tuesday morning with lobbying for Issue 3. All delegates will have the opportunity to express their interest in a subtopic for each main issue to the chairs through a form, so chairs will know their preference and lobby groups.
SUBMITTING A RESOLUTION
Delegates will receive co-submitter sheets from the Student Officers. Note that a resolution requires 20 signatures/co-submitters for it to be approved (inclusive of the delegates that are already in the lobbying group).
Draft resolution are reviewed by the Student Officers to ensure it has the right format, complies with the UN Charter, contains no plagiarism, and is of suitable content. If the aforementioned is not the case, the resolution will be rejected until necessary changes have been made.
Once it has been reviewed, Chairs are to upload the resolution for the Approval Panel and they will inform the executive team.
The Approval Panel will see which Resolution has been uploaded and needs editing. The chairs and a executive member will contact the main submitter delegate to go to the Approval Panel. The MUN-Director in the Approval Panel will will then be waiting for the student/s to edit and approve the resolution.
Once the resolution is approved it will be ready for debate and will be visible in the Resolutions Section on the Webapp.
