Resolution

Resolutions are the decision of a committee on how one of their topics should be solved. It is a multi-clause document, each clause either providing context information or outlining a particular method of solving the subject.

We recommend that delegates prepare their own resolution or operative clause before the conference to ensure the majority of time is spent on debating rather than lobbying.

Lobbying time is for you to present your resolution to other countries, hoping that they will a co-submitter of your resolution. The co-submitter is a country that wants your resolution to be debated with the whole committee. After having enough co-submitters, the resolution must be approved by your chairs and then the approval panel before it can be debated.

When writing a resolution keep in mind that there are terms that need to be used at the start of every pre-ambulatory and an operative clause. Down below we have included appropriate operative and perambulatory clauses. Furthermore, your resolution should be a minimum of three operating clauses per resolution and a few pre-ambulatory clauses per resolution.
