To be able to attend the event with the best experience, praparations are highly recommended. This guide is meant to provide you with a very basic understanding of the general concepts we will be discussing at both theoretical and concrete levels during the conference, and should in no way be the only resource you read to prepare for the Model East Asia Summit. Each delegate will be expected to provide insight that has not been offered in the guide, especially as relates to his or her respective country’s position on the relevant issues.
Please prepare a position paper to present to your respective panel. It should cover the position your respective country takes and preferably backed up by recent events as evidents. The paper should be around 300 words to last under 2 minutes. Delegates are expected to be concise and succint.
The final results of discussion, writing and negotiation are resolutions—written suggestions for addressing a specific problem or issue. Resolutions, which are drafted by delegates and voted on by the committee, normally require a simple majority to pass. The resolutions are recommendations or suggestions for future action. Although not nec- essary, it is strongly encourage for the delegates to draft a resolution before the summit commence for a head start.
A draft resolution must always gain the support of 5 member states in the committee before the sponsors (the delegates who created the resolution) may submit it to the committee staff. A detaild format for the resolution will be sent to you before the conference start.
