2010 Handbooks

Below you will find the American Model United Nations International (AMUN) 2010 Representative Handbooks, the main preparation guides for the AMUN Conference.

Printed copies of these books are sent to all registered delegations, and they are also placed online for easy access by any participating student.

Individuals or groups not attending AMUN are also welcome to view and utilize the material in these books. Individuals are welcome to use any preparation tips they feel appropriate. We hope that these handbooks can be helpful to a broad community of MUN participants and other interested individuals.


Interested in using our materials for your own conference?

Other Model UN conferences or groups are also welcome to utilize AMUN’s Handbooks or other printed materials. Whether your conference is just starting out, or if an existing conference is revamping and updating their materials, you are welcome to utilize any items published by AMUN if they will assist your group. As these handbooks are under copyright, we do ask that any group interested in reprinting AMUN materials or publishing a handbook (or other preparation guide) which includes AMUN materials make a formal request to the AMUN Executive Office for the use of this information. This can be done by filling out the Request for permission to use handbooks.


Note that these handbooks are available in .pdf formats — we recommend that you download and view/print the handbooks to guarantee formatting which is as close to the original as possible. The first link for each handbook displays the book in its entirety. Other links display one chapter at a time for your ease of viewing and printing.
