COVID Vaccination and Attendance Policy

This handbook provides the critical information you need to prepare for and participate in the 2020 American Model United Nations Conference.

This year, we have consolidated the information previously found in our two handbook publications, Issues at AMUN and AMUN Rules and Procedures into a single digital handbook. This handbook is now your one-stop-shop for conference information and policies, research and preparation tips, background guides and bibliographies, information about writing resolutions and reports, and the AMUN Rules of Procedure.

You can read and print a customized version of the handbook for your simulation by selecting it here:

You can also read the individual chapters below and print them out or view the Full Handbook.
