Resolution Writing

A resolution is a problem-solving solution. In MUN we are encouraged to generate


and share new ideas with fellow delegates to create possible verdicts that can
benefit the countries of the United Nations.

able to easily identify the severe issues that are being faced in that country today.
Focus on the most controversial issue that negatively impacts your country.
Find others who share similar problems in that area:
a) Go around and find other countries that are in similar situations as your
country.
b) Tip#1: Do not be afraid to get up and meet someone new. We all can be
socially awkward at times, and its ok. By mingling with others you will
find co-authors that will get you to a successfully passed resolution.
Establish a solution that can resolve not only your countrys problem but also
benefit the United Nations as a whole.
a) Brainstorm different ways to solve this problem, whether it's changing a
policy that is already active or creating a program.
b) Remember, when writing those resolutions, the power that the United
Nations actually has. For example, the United Nations cannot force
countries to comply with anything in the resolution.
Choose a title that best reflects the intent.
Have persuasive Perambulatory Clauses.
Have clear and detailed Operative Clauses that provide an insightful solution to
the problem youve addressed.

: These form the policy portion of the resolution. Each of these clauses starts with a
verb and taken as a whole, deals thoroughly with one idea arranged in logical
progression. Each clause should not be a collection of unrelated thoughts or
statements on a board topic, but should focus on one aspect of the problem.

Amendments
: Sometimes during unmoderated caucus or resolution debate, you may notice that
there is a key point to the resolution that is missing or is incorrect. An amendment
either adds, deletes, or edits a clause of the resolution. It is a simple and
straightforward way to help contribute to the resolution and the debate.
