"Position Papers are formal statements of a country's policy regarding
a particular issue. Every delegation, in every committee, for every topic
must write a Position Paper. Position Papers should be approximately one
page long; they should briefly frame the situation under discussion, describe
how it relates to the country, state the country's stance on the issue,
and finally discuss possible scenarios through which the issue may be
resolved. (Note, however, that Position Papers in no way resemble Draft
Each Position Paper must have a heading. The first line shows the committee
for which the Position Paper is written, the second line shows the topic,
and the third line shows the country.

purpose-every sentence should count. Research your topics and country
stances vigorously, then, before writing the Position Papers, so you might
make the best use of the space allotted.
Position Papers must be sent by 4 November 2002.
