Drafting and Adopting United Nations Resolutions (7 October - 3 November 2013)

The course will focus on communication through written means as well as, to a lesser degree, how delegates conduct consultations in preparing resolutions. The course will allow participants to build the requisite knowledge and skills to draft and adopt UN resolutions. A detailed study of the content, structure and processes involved in passing resolutions will reinforce an understanding of decision-making at the UN.
