United Nations General Assembly

The United Nations General Assembly is arguably the most central part of the United Nations. In this principal organ, all member nations have equal representation. The General Assembly receive reports from other parts of UN and other international organizations, councils, and advisors. It then makes recommendations in the form of General Assembly Resolutions, on which the member nations vote. 

Subsidiary organs of the General Assembly include its six main Committees. MUNUM will feature the first, third, fourth, and sixth: DISEC, SOCHUM, SPECPOL, and Legal. At MUNUM, each main committee’s members are selected carefully by the Secretariat. Committees are led by daises consisting of directors, assistant directors, and rapporteurs who are undergraduate students.
