WIMUN Approach

WIMUN is WFUNA’s global flagship MUN conference and uses the WIMUN approach to simulating UN meetings. The General Assembly and Security Council developed by the United Nations Department of Public Information. Their approach offers the most accurate simulation of the United Nations in the world. Further, It gives participants an experiential insight into how the UN really functions. This includes an emphasis on adopting resolutions by consensus, meaning delegates negotiate. Until they all agree on the text of a draft resolution and can formally adopt it without needing to vote. The collaborative nature of the consensus building process is in stark contrast to the competitive voting process used in traditional Model UNs. In addition, WIMUN approach replaces the Parliamentary Rules of Procedure used by traditional MUNs with rules that are based on the actual rules used by the United Nations General Assembly and Security Council.
