ABOUT THE COMMITTEE

UN Women is the United Nations entity dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. A global champion for women and girls, UN Women was established to accelerate progress on meeting their needs worldwide. It operates at global, regional, and national levels, collaborating with governments, civil society organizations, and other UN agencies. 
 

Established in 2010 by the United Nations General Assembly, UN Women merges and builds upon the mandates and resources of previously distinct UN entities dealing with gender equality and women's empowerment. These entities include the Division for the Advancement of Women (DAW), the International Research and Training Institute for the Advancement of Women (INSTRAW), the Office of the Special Adviser on Gender Issues and Advancement of Women (OSAGI), and the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM). The General Assembly also established the UN-Women Executive Board as the Governing Body of the Entity to provide intergovernmental support to and supervision of its operational activities. The UN-Women Executive Board is made up of representatives from 41 Member States elected for three-year terms by the UN Economic and Social Council.


Delegates shall represent one of the 41 current member states of the UN Women Executive Board. The working procedure of the Committee will be led by the Committee Directors. Delegates in the UN Women Executive Board must write a position paper for the announced topics and submit it to the MUNLawS Academic team. Position papers will be reviewed and scored by the Academic team and shall greatly contribute to the final scores of delegates, upon which Committee awards will be based. Instructions on how to write the position paper are published on this website. Failure to follow these instructions or to meet the deadline for the submission of the position papers will result in negative points for the position paper. All delegates shall present their opening statements on the discussed topic after setting the agenda. Once every delegate presents their opening statement, which must not exceed 2 minutes, a general speakers list will be established and the floor shall be open to points or motions, as described in the General Rules of Procedure. Delegates recognized from the general speakers' list shall have no more than one and a half minute to address the Committee.

The main goal of the Committee is to adopt a Resolution. Issues that have not been discussed during formal debate may not be included in the Resolution. Every delegate shall read the General Rules of Procedure prior to the start of the MUNLawS Conference for a further detailed description of the procedure
