Welcome to the New AMUN Accords
In fall 2016, we quietly launched the AMUN Blog. The blog started as a way to convey important information about AMUN: from key American Model UN conference information to background on conference topics. Our plan was simple: provide high-quality, educational Model UN content and cultivate a space online where AMUN participants and the Model UN community more broadly might contribute to this conversation. Over the last year, our editorial team has talked about how we can better realize that goal. The AMUN Accords is the result: your premier resource for fact-based Model United Nations simulations. This new site will offer weekly content on all things Model UN. Each of our three channels provides information on a different aspect of Model UN:
- Turtle Bay provides coverage of the United Nations in New York, Geneva, Nairobi, Rome, Montreal, Vienna, and around the world. Turtle Bay includes a special focus on the bodies and topics being simulated at American Model United Nations. On this channel, you’ll find content that provides insight into the history and inner-working of the United Nations system. Turtle Bay is, of course, the real-world home of the United Nations Headquarters in Manhattan.
- Model UN Tips and Tricks covers the best tools, techniques, and resources that anyone can use to be a better Model UN representative. Model UN Tips and Tricks will cover the basics, but it will also feature practices from real-world diplomats and foreign policy practitioners.
- Two Point Two, a nod to AMUN’s rule on Diplomatic Courtesy, gives you the latest information specific to the American Model United Nations Conference, including updates on the conference schedule, simulations and logistics. This channel also includes AMUN-specific information about rules of procedure and the philosophy behind our approach to Model UN, from the form and function of our rules to the selection of committee simulations.
Contributors to the AMUN Accords include AMUN’s volunteer staff, foreign policy professionals, faculty advisors, and more. If you are interested in contributing, take a look at the AMUN Accords submission guidelines and the topics we’d like to run.
