Conference Handbook

Below you will find the United Nations International Model United Nations (UNIMUN) 2000 Conference Handbook, the main preparation guides for the UNIMUN conference. Printed copies of these books, produced in partnership with The Stanley Foundation, are sent to all registered delegations, and they are also placed on-line for easy access by any participating student.

Individuals or groups not attending UNIMUN are also welcome to view and utilize the material in these books. Individuals are welcome to use any preparation tips they feel appropriate. We hope that this Handbook can be helpful to a broad community of MUN participants and other interested individuals.

Other Model UN conferences are also welcome to utilize UNIMUN's Handbooks or other printed materials. Whether your conference is just starting out, or if an existing conference is revamping and updating their materials, you are welcome to utilize any items published by UNIMUN if they will assist your group. As these are copywritten, we do ask that any group interested in reprinting UNIMUN materials or publishing a handbook (or other preparation guide) which includes UNIMUN materials make a formal request to the AMUN Executive Office for the use of this information. This can be done by e-mail to mail@amun.org, or by calling 773-777-AMUN.
