VMUN 2019 will feature twenty unique committees that address a variety of topics that are relevant and contentious in today’s world. Whether delegates seek the thrill of debating in our larger General Assemblies, a more focused Specialized Agency, or a dynamic Crisis Committee, they are bound to find a committee that appeals to their interests. Some committees are well-suited for the MUN veteran, and some for the first time participant. More information, including topic summaries and committee sizes, can be found on each committee’s page, linked below.
Position papers are mandatory for delegates in advanced committees. Delegates in beginner and intermediate committees are highly recommended to submit position papers and must do so in order to be considered for awards. House of Commons delegates will be required to submit Private Member’s Resolutions. For more information regarding position papers and due dates, please consult the committee’s background guide.
Background guides will be posted in due course and will be found on each committee’s page. If you have any questions concerning VMUN’s
