The main goal of the delegations during the conference should be to produce a resolution. Be mindful of its importance, as the resolution is the materialized outcome of the hours spent debating. It must contain the proposed solutions to the problems being discussed.

Any delegate can write a draft resolution, but they are usually written by a group of delegates who have similar positions or approaches to the problem (a bloc). After a draft resolution has been voted and passed, it becomes a resolution and should not be spoken about during debate anymore.

After presented through a motion, this document may only be altered through amendments. The Chairs may, however, edit its layout and/or correct possible grammar mistakes. Yet it is strongly recommended for delegates, if time allows for it, to re-read the resolution, as this will allow the identification of simple syntax or continuation problems.

There is a resolution example by the end of this page.


1. Heading

  1. Preambulatory clauses, separated by commas

  2. Operative Clauses, numbered and separated by semi-colons (;) and a skipped line

a. Subclauses, separated by commas

b. A colon (:) between a clause and a subclause
c. A point after the last clause

  1. Resolutions should be written so as to make syntaxial sense as one single sentence with a point only at the end, so clauses and their subclauses should have a continuity.


Committee: (Name of committee)

Topic: (Topic of the debate or topic of the agenda being addressed)

Main-submitters: (List of at most 3 main-submitters)

Co-submitters: (List of at least 5 co-submitters)

Main-submitters are the delegates who wrote most of the resolution and agree with it. One of them will get to read it out loud to the committee and make a speech in favor of it. Plus, they will decide on whether to pass an amendment as friendly or unfriendly. Main-submitters are allowed to vote against the resolution, especially after it is altered by amendments. Co-submitters are the rest of the delegates who helped to write the resolution and other delegates who may not agree with it, yet approve that it should be read and discussed.
