Participants in SAMUN or other Model United Nations conferences are known as delegates, are placed in committees and assigned countries, or occasionally other organizations or political figures, where they represent members of that body. They are presented with their assignments in advance, along with a topic or topics that their committee will discuss. Delegates conduct research before conferences and formulate positions that they will then debate with their fellow delegates in the committee, staying true to the actual position of the member they represent. At the end of a conference, the best-performing delegates in each committee, as well as delegations, are sometimes recognized with awards.
SAMUN is a great plethora for students to engage in the world of diplomacy. It is the foundation stone for building the empire of world politics. Participation in SAMUN is meant to foster negotiation, speaking and communication skills.
