Cork City Hall became the United Nations Headquarters for two days

170 students became UN delegates, debated and wrote a resolution on Medical Ethics, Nuclear Proliferation and the Arab-Israeli Conflict

The objective of the Model United Nations is to write clauses and ultimately resolutions that will tackle, resolve or at least minimise problems connected to pressing world issues in the areas of human rights, scientific advancement, ethics, aid, disarmament, etc. Students become experts in the delegation they represent and on the issues debated. They then write clauses, which are debated, voted for/against and included (or not) in a resolution.
