For all Committees, it is necessary to submit a position paper. A position paper is a summary of your country or character’s position on the topic(s).

At WinMUN, we ask that you submit position papers according to the following 3-paragraph format. Position papers should be one page per topic (double or single spaced with standard margins) and include a header with committee, country, topic (A or B, if applicable) and school.


Paragraph one should be a general background of the topic being discussed. It should go beyond the scope of the background guide, yet should be brief. Sift through your information to find the most essential nuggets of information and put those in this paragraph. This paragraph should be short; 3-4 sentences should suffice.
