How do I make it Happen

One of the essential skills involved in a Model UN debate is arguing from a standpoint that may not be your own so it is important that you do not represent your own native country.

For a Model United Nations with 30 people we suggest dividing up into delegations of three young people to the following countries:


France
UK
Uruguay
Malawi
USA
China
India
Afghanistan
Iran
Russia

The delegations then research their country and compile a country profile.

The BBC and CIA websites have excellent country profiles, as does the New Internationalist World Guide which comes as a multi-user CD-Rom and as a book, covering information on 200 countries, UN statistics and numerous features on key global issues.
