ABOUT THE UN
The United Nations is an intergovernmental organization tasked to promote and secure international cooperation and to create and maintain international order. A replacement for the ineffective League of Nations, the organization was established on 24 October 1945 after World War II with the aim of preventing another such conflict. At its founding, the UN had 51 member states. The headquarters of the UN is in Manhattan, New York City, and is subject to extraterritoriality. Further main offices are situated in Geneva, Nairobi, and Vienna. The organization is financed by assessed and voluntary contributions from its member states. Its objectives include maintaining international peace and security, promoting human rights, fostering social and economic development, protecting the environment, and providing humanitarian aid in cases of famine, natural disaster, and armed conflict. The UN is the largest, most familiar, most internationally represented and most powerful intergovernmental organization in the world. The UN Charter was drafted at a conference between April and June 1945 in San Francisco, and was signed on 26 June 1945 at the conclusion of the conference; Roosevelt first coined the term United Nations to describe the Allied countries. "On New Year's Day 1942, President Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill, Maxim Litvinov, of the USSR, and T. V. Soong, of China, signed a short document which later came to be known as the United Nations Declaration and the next day the representatives of twenty-two other nations added their signatures." The term United Nations was first officially used when 26 governments signed this Declaration. One major change from the Atlantic Charter was the addition of a provision for religious freedom, which Stalin approved after Roosevelt insisted. By 1 March 1945, 21 additional states had signed. During the war, "the United Nations" became the official term for the Allies. To join, countries had to sign the Declaration and declare war on the Axis.

RULES OF MUN PROCEDURE
During lobbying, delegates are split up into groups which are usually determined by the committee issues. Delegates split into these groups based on their country’s perspective on the issues, or which topic they have researched the most. In these groups, the main aim is to write a resolution to be debated upon during the conference. All topics will be debated, and therefore at least one resolution should be written for each topic.
After the resolutions are submitted by the delegates to the chairboard, the resolutions will be debated upon throughout the sessions. Debates will be moderated by the chairs. When the delegate has finished giving their speech, they will yield the floor to the Chair.
During open debates, the delegates can make speeches in favor or against upon the issue/resolution.
Closed debate is used during debating on amendments. During closed debates a time limit is set for both “for” and “against” speeches. Closed debates are usually shorter than open debates.
Amendments are proposed changes to the resolution that is being debated. It can be submitted by delegates during the debate.The delegates can present their amendment by saying “Motion to entertain our amendment.” If the main submitter of the resolution accepts it as a “friendly amendment” it won’t be debated upon and necessary changes will be made on the resolution.
Points & Motions
Point of Information is a question that can be made to the delegate who is giving a speech or to the chair.
Point of Personal Privilege is used to state the discomfort of a delegate or when a delegate is not able to hear the speaker. This is the only point that can interrupt a speaker.
Point of Order is a point about the procedure. It should be addressed to the chairs.
Point of Information to the Chair is a point to ask a question directly to the chair.
Motion to Extend the Debating Time is used if the delegate wants to have further time for against or in favor speeches.
Motion to Move into Time Against/In Favor is used to end the debate time and move into against or in favor speeches.
Motion to Move into Voting Procedure is used to end the debate time and move directly to the voting procedure.
