General Assembly considers reports of the Fifth Committee General Assembly considers reports of the Fifth Committee

To participate effectively in a Model UN conference you will use a variety of skills. This section provides guidance on the four key areas:

  • Chairing - Chairmanship is the art of managing meetings. The Chairman of GA Committee is its presiding officer, the individual who has accepted responsibility for ensuring that the debate within a Committee is orderly and that it takes all necessary decisions as outlined in its Programme of Work.
  • Drafting - The main goal of a conference is to adopt an outcome document that Member States as a whole can agree on. The outcome document can be a decision, a declaration or a resolution. Find out more about drafting here.
