An academic simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate participants about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy and the U.N. agenda. Participants role-play as delegates representing a nation in a simulated session of a committee of the U.N., such as the Security Council or the General Assembly. Delegates research a country, take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult and then develop solutions (known as resolutions) to world problems. Maine South has been participating in Model United Nations events for over 20 years and attends about 4 to 5 conferences a year.
