FAQs

1. How does an online Model UN Conference work?

Please refer to the 'Rules of Procedure (ROP)' document detailing the council session protocol. We have adapted the standard offline MUN procedures to an online format. 

 

2. Is there anything different from conventional MUNs I need to have to participate?

A reliable and strong internet connection, earpieces/ headphones, microphone (if built-in laptop microphone is unreliable or unclear). 

 

3. How can we prevent connection issues?

Council sizes are kept small (12 -20 delegates), allowing debate to proceed smoothly with minimal technical glitches. Moreover, there would be no webcam use during council sessions and only audio would be present, so as to prevent lagging.

4. What is the conference payment for?

Firstly, the payments ensure that delegates who sign up are present for the conference, as no refunds are given if a delegate absents himself/herself. Secondly, the payments are used to keep the Munbank website running year-round, to pay for web hosting and domain costs. Thirdly, funds are used to further improve Munbank's services to MUNers worldwide and to increase our global reach with advertisement expenses.
