The philosophy of an MUN or Model United Nations resonates with the intergovernmental body called the United Nations (UN), which was established in hopes to unite all the states of Earth. An MUN is an attempt made by committed individuals to mock the sessions of the UN, which includes organ committees like the General Assembly, Security Council, International Court of Justice, Economic and Social Council, and other agendas of current relevance. An MUN participant is allotted a nation or a person of influence, and takes the role of a policy maker of his/her respective nation. Rigorous debating within a mocked committee on a given agenda follows this, and the delegate who proposes the most pragmatic solution to the given problem wins. The winner or the ‘best speaker’ of the competition is the one who has the best knowledge of foreign policies of not only their own allotted portfolio but of others also. Thus, participating in an MUN Conference requires one to do tons of extensive research of policies, laws and information concerning his/her portfolio, and of his/her challengers, who are involved in their committee.
