How to Research for MUN?
Keep these three ideas in mind:
- Use Reputable Sources - This the most important idea to keep in mind for any type of research you do now or in the future especially for school. Make sure all the information your are citing or talking about are written my trusted groups such as: research journal article, government agencies or foreign governments. News sites can be very helpful just make sure they are quoting or "linking" to reputable sources.
- Is it clearly explaining what I need? The best sources clearly and plainly describe facts or events - this is the best information to reference in your position papers and resolutions as it is easy to reference or re-explain.
- Is it relevant & does it support my Member States point of view? The United Nations has many interesting and important organizations with research on every Member State and their activities including topics such as human rights, climate change and social equality. It can be overwhelming how much information is out there so we suggest all delegates focused on the events that effect their Member State and the actions taken by their member state.
