Position Paper
Kabul Model United Nations asks each delegate to submit a Position Paper; an essay detailing your country’s policies on the topics being discussed in your committee. Writing a Position Paper will help you organize your ideas so that you can share your country’s position with the rest of the committee members.
Writing a Position Paper might appear to be a daunting task, especially for new delegates. But, with enough research, you will find that writing a Position Paper will be easy and useful. The most important thing is that the Position Paper should not describe the topic, but rather describe the country’s position on the topic. Therefore, to write a Position Paper a delegate should look at governmental documents on the relevant sites of the country that s/he represents. A good Position Paper will not only provide facts, but also make proposals for resolution.
Please note that your Position Paper must cover what the UN and your country have done previously to address the matter, what is currently in place, and what is planned for the future.
