Preparing for KarlMUN?
What is the DPS?
The Delegates preparation seminar (DPS) takes place on November 22. We will introduce the Rules of Procedure and some details about KarlMUN to you. You will also do some hands-on practice. We strongly advise all first MUNers to participate, for all others it’s really recommendable to participate.
How to prepare for the conference?
Preparation is the key to a successful conference. Therefore, we strongly recommend a well-founded research before the conference. The research should focus on three main points.
- The United Nations and your committee
- The topics
Normally your preparation starts with the study guide which we will provide to you after your application. Nevertheless, the research on your country can start even before that. More information and a detailed guide on research will be found in the conference guide, which will be given to you during the DPS.
Can I represent my own nation?
Yes and no. We assign nations based on the preferences you stated in your application. That may result in you representing your own nation. However, there is no definite way to influence which nation you will be assigned even though we try to find the best match.
