• 标准模拟联合国议事规则

    Standard Model United Nations Rules of Procedure

  • 序言

    Preface

    2017年9月,中国高校模拟联合国活动高速发展之际,我们经过长期的探索与实践,参考哈佛、耶鲁、维也纳、罗马、海牙等国际著名会议的一系列议事规则,最终在国内常用议事规则的基础上,整理、总结并发布了《标准模拟联合国议事规则》(以下简称“标规”)。

     

    标规发布以来,北京大学国际模拟联合国大会、中国政法大学模拟联合国大会、南京航空航天大学模拟联合国大会、海南大学模拟联合国大会等国内五十余场高校模联会议直接采用或适当修改后引入了这套规则。令人欣喜的是,从这一年的实践成果中可以看到,标规确实在一定程度上减轻了学术团队的工作压力,减少了会场上由于规则不一所造成的争执,免除了部分代表对参会需学习多套规则的忧虑,促进了模联会议的高效运行。

     

    标规发布后,我们也收到了大量使用者的反馈,对结构、语句等一系列内容提出了意见和建议。编写组在认真研究全部反馈意见的基础上,又经过几个月的讨论、修改和校勘,最终完成了《标准模拟联合国议事规则(第二版)》。与2017年9月发布的第一版相比,新版本重新调整了议事规则流程部分的撰写结构,增加了综述等内容,增强了标规的可读性,让初次参会者也能够轻松理解规则内容。同时,新版本适当优化、删除了一些争议较大或存在问题的内容,使规则更加适应国内高校会议的习惯。

     

    我们发布并推广标规,希望减少高校会议学团工作的压力,减轻代表学习规则的负担,提升模联会议的效率和质量。我们相信,随着标规的不断普及,使用者的不断反馈,编写组的不断修订和完善,标规将进一步推动模拟联合国活动在国内高校的发展和普及。

     

    让我们强化合作,弱化分歧,为中国高校模拟联合国活动更好的明天而不断努力。

    Since the inception of the Standard Model UN (MUN) Rules of Procedure (RP) in September 2017, more than 50 Model United Nations conferences in China have adopted its use. Several conferences have also adapted the Standard MUN Rules of Procedure to tailor to the various nature and functions of the Committees. We are pleased that the introduction of a standardized Rules of Procedure has eased the workload of having to draft and update many different sets of Rules of Procedure.

     

    The Standard MUN Rules of Procedure was drafted with an ambition to minimize the differences across MUN conferences. The editorial team referred to several RP adopted by MUNs across Harvard, Yale, Vienna, Rome, Hague, etc., and eventually released the Standard MUN Rules of Procedure based on the commonly used Rules of Procedure within China. By having a Standard Rules of Procedure, participating delegates can now refer to one standardized version of Rules of Procedure to master, thus saving the trouble of studying and memorizing different sets of Rules of Procedure, therefore reducing disputes over certain points or motions, and easing the flow of conference procedures. The Standard MUN Rules of Procedure also provide comprehensive explanations to new procedures and a detailed committee simulation to allow all to integrate to the new system.

     

    Over the past year, many have provided feedback on the usage, structure, content, and phrasing of the Standard MUN Rules of Procedure. As devoted members of the MUN sphere, we then uphold our responsibilities to update the Standard MUN Rules of Procedure. After months of collation and brainstorming, we have put together a revision of the Standard MUN Rules of Procedure. It consists structural realignment and more thoroughly explained procedures. A revised committee simulation is also attached, applying the revised Standard MUN Rules of Procedure in practice. The structural realignment will assist delegates to follow through the Rules of Procedure alongside with the progress of debate.

     

    By taking into consideration the concerns of MUN Associations and the practicality of a standardized Rules of Procedure, it is our hope to gather the support of MUN Association across China to integrate its usage during conferences, and to benefit both MUN organizers and delegates. With the revised Standard MUN Rules of Procedure, we believe we can make a concerted effort to do away with our differences and eventually benefit all within the MUN circle.
