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.
This workshop provides training on how to go about drafting a UN Resolution, from the rules, terminology of drafting a UN Resolution, to the process underpinning its adoption. 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.
To enable participants to:
- Describe the structure and form of United Nations resolutions and decisions;
- Apply this improved understanding and enhanced skills when drafting resolutions; and
- Distinguish the rules and practices relating to the adoption of resolutions.
