Importance of public speaking in mun l.jpg

Importance of Public Speaking in MUN

  • Public speaking is one of the most important tools needed for Model UN

    • Conveying member state’s position

    • Building consensus

    • Formulating resolutions

    • Limit in speaking time – so, speak efficiently

  • If it’s your first time, do not worry because your public speaking skills will flourish through practice in MUN

  • Apply public speaking skills even during informal debate:

    • Caucus: informally speaking, but keep important public-speaking skills in mind

Public Speaking and MUN

  • Afraid of speaking in front of a large group?

    • First and foremost, be WELL PREPARED!

    • LISTEN and LEARN

    • Help out in the making of resolutions and make sure you are always in time for roll call

    • Ask your MUN exec for tips during the conference, we’d love to help!

Types of Debate in MUN

  • Formal Debate

    • Staff (secretary) maintains a speaker’s list and delegates speak in order they are listed

    • Delegates have an opportunity to share their country’s point of view on topic

    • Delegates will introduce their position papers, answer questions, introduce and debate about resolutions

Types of Debate in MUN

  • MODERATED Caucus

    • Temporary Recess: formal procedures of debate are suspended

    • To go to Moderated Caucus, a delegate must motion for it and the whole committee will then vote for the motion to pass.

    • More intense than formal debate because there is more cross debate
