RECAP

Moderated Caucus: For you to zoom in onto a specific

aspect of the issue.

Un-Moderated Caucus: 2 purposes.

(1) Resolve and clarify countries’ stance, should the views in
council be complex, multi faceted and cannot be clarified
within debate.

(2) Resolution Writing

Resolution Writing (Un-
moderated Caucus)

2 ways to use your time during un-moderated caucus for the
purpose of writing a resolution:

• Combine resolutions with your allies. This will make your
resolution more comprehensive and resolute.

• Gather names on your signatory list. Most MUN councils
require 1/3 of the countries present to be on the signatory
list for the reso to be debated and considered in council.
Some steps to do this:

a) Show/tell another delegate about your resolution.
b) Ask: “Is the delegate of XXX in favour of debating this reso in council?”
c) If yes, add the name to the signatory/sponsor list. If no, move on.
