Background

While the Charter of the UN has often been regarded as the constitution of the Organization, resolutions adopted by its principal organs may be considered its laws.

Participants will learn about the structure of UN resolutions, with a detailed introduction to resolution drafting.  They will gain hands-on experience through drafting exercises. Rules and practices relating to the adoption of resolutions and decisions are also covered.

Event Objectives
