The paper is divided into three sections, each in a separate paragraph, as follows: a. History of the topic: The first section of your papers should discuss the background of the topic. This section should NOT merely be a re-statement of your background guide. Instead, it should elaborate on the issue AS YOUR COUNTRY sees it. According to your nation, what are the fundamental issues at hand? What are the major problems that need to be discussed? Why have these problems arisen? b. History of your country’s position on the topic: The next section should explain your nation’s specific history with the topic, explaining and assessing the various solutions that your country has explored. What actions has your country taken to address this problem? How has your country voted on previous UN resolutions on this topic? What general positions have you taken in the past? Which actions have been successful for your nation, and in what areas is further improvement needed? c. Proposed solutions to the topic: The final portion of your paper should discuss the various solutions that your nation would like the UN to consider. How do you feel the UN should address this issue? What specific actions would you like to see taken? What solutions would you support in a resolution? What remedies does your country oppose? Furthermore, how will your nation’s specific stance on this issue match up with other countries’ positions? Make sure to reference the “questions a resolution must answer” section of your background guide in this section of your paper. The last section of the paper does not need to contain goals that you could realistically achieve after negotiations and compromise – but they should be goals that your nation is willing and prepared to pursue.
