Frequently asked questions
Participants are assigned to different countries for the duration of the conference as a delegate of that country. As a participant, you represent the official policies of the country you have been assigned to and defend these policies on different global issues. These issues are discussed within your Committee. In order to defend your country’s stance, you need to research the general policies of the country you are representing. Within the Committees, you employ specific knowledge about policies on given topics. This will also enable you to make sure your countries’ interests are properly represented in the resolutions that you and the other countries in your committee are going to draft.
The lecture days will expand your knowledge of the subjects that will be discussed during the second week: the actual conference week. During the conference, students represent a country during a fully-fledged United Nations Conference simulation. Resolutions are to be written, coalitions will be made or broken and an international court case will be simulated. All these events will be reviewed, reported and commented upon by the Press Department via a daily newspaper.
Please be aware that UNISCA is an academic programme, for which you are obliged to take an exam and hand in an academic position paper several weeks preceding the actual conference weeks.
Further information on the exact form of the examination will soon be announced.
