Prior to the conference, each delegate must research the issues and prepare Position Papers which outline in paragraph form the country's particular view(s) on the issue(s). Researching for a Model United Nations conference can be facilitated by numerous online sources. (Most United Nation member countries have their own state, foreign ministry and U.N. Mission participants.)
