UNITAR and Experts Roundtable

The UNITAR (UN Institute for Training and Research) Training Session, held on Saturday morning at each Annual Session, is an opportunity for delegates to learn vital information on resolution writing from experts in the field with experience writing, negotiating, and passing resolutions at the United Nations. The Session also includes a round table discussion and Q&A session with conference speakers and honored guests, many of whom currently work for the United Nations or in diplomatic missions in New York. Past round tables have included discussions on working at the United Nations, job duties and responsibilities of Member State diplomats, and ways to market Model UN experience when applying for jobs in International Relations and other fields.
