General Assembly Background Guides and Position Papers

Background guides for the General Assembly Main Committees are meant to introduce delegates to the issues being addressed in each of the main committees at WHSMUN 2016.  Guides are introductory in nature and are not comprehensive of all of the complexities and nuances of the issue.  They are written to set the stage for the issue and should be used as a means to begin a delegate’s research for writing their position paper and preparing for meaningful debate and resolution writing at WHSMUN. In order to be considered for awards, position papers must be uploaded by the deadline. DEADLINE for Position Papers Extended to Thursday, March 10th, 2016.   UPLOAD POSITION PAPERS HERE(Username and Password are being sent to advisors.  You can also e-mail Dina Wolf at to request this information.)
