Are you who I need? You, the one under the winking lights. The dance moves flow with the heavy bass, while I flutter through one game afteranother, losing to the same person for good. Straining my eyes and neck, I want todiscern the magical trick on stage. In fact, it was the savvy eyes hidden in piles ofpeople across that I desire far more. I must win just for once, the complete attentionfrom those eyes as the prize, so that with fake ease, granted a chance to ask”, let’sdance, shall we?”

團。圓
中華文化影響深遠廣泛,習俗多而熱鬧。貫串其中的精神,說穿了就是簡簡單單的──「團圓」。團圓之前,勢必有分離。分離並不一定悲傷,是為了讓我們各自去經驗故事,帶著它們,回來和家人分享。這裡或許不像家一樣輕鬆緊密,我們還是遇在一起,共創新的故事先不想討論分離。談笑之間,才明白原來分離,是為了和更多人團圓。

Reunion
Chinese culture has developed far and deep influence for centuries. It holds diverseand lively customs as well. The spirit, in brief, is all about reunion. There alwaysstands a separation before it. Yet not every separation is mournful. It forces us totake adventures so that we bring them back to home. In spite of the fact that homeis unparalleled, we meet here, composing new stories, giving no thoughts toseparation around the corner. Chitchatting, and laughing, we realize that departing isfor another reunion with beautiful people

What is Pan Asia Model United Nations?

Delegates take on the role and policies of a UN member state and get to debate and cooperate other like minded to try and resolve global issues. The topics that get discussed at PAMUN will cover issues ranging from international peace and security, to human rights, to socio-economic development. At the end of your conference, you will have met new people, broadened your knowledge of international affairs, and gained a better appreciation of the challenging yet important duty faced by the United Nations.

Are laptops allowed in the committee rooms?

Laptops and other electronic devices may not be used during formal sessions. Delegates who wish to work on documents during sessions will be asked to work outside of committee rooms. However, laptops and other electronic devices may be used inside the committee room during unmoderated sessions.

How should I prepare for the conference?

At the bare minimum, you should familiarize yourself with the PAMUN 2016 Rules of Procedure, both topics in your committee’s background guide. Any MUN background guide, however, is only meant to be a start to your research. A strong delegate will also do their own research through both print and online resources. This should include past actions the UN and/or your country has taken on an issue, which you can use as an inspiration for your solution. Delegates are also reminded that as a representative of a country, you are expected to take your country's stance on the topic. While this may differ from your personal opinion, this is something faced by all political representatives.

Citi Pan Asia MUN strictly prohibits the use of pre-drafted working papers and draft resolutions. The spirit of Model UN is cooperation and participatory democracy. Preemptively drafting a document using only your ideas is against this spirit.

What is the difference between single and double delegations?

Both single and double delegations represent one country. Single delegations are comprised of a single delegate whereas double delegations are comprised of two delegates representing the same country and working together as a team during the conference. Being a single or double delegation offers different experiences during the conference. We recommend that you choose whichever option you feel most comfortable with. Please take special note of the the committees that are limited to either single or double delegations: Committees with only double delegations: UNSC Committees with only single delegations: N/A Committees with both single and double delegations: ARF DISEC FAO IMF SOCHUM UNODC WCSMF Please see our Delegate Registration page for more information.

What is a school delegation?

School Delegations are only available for delegates who are studying at a post-secondary institution outside of Taiwan. This is meant to facilitate important conference communications with overseas delegates who may attend the same school or be members of the same club. Instead of communicating with each delegate individually, important information will be forwarded to the school delegation's head delegate. There is no advantage or disadvantage to registering as part of a school delegation, and it will have no impact on your country assignments or committee experience.

What is group delegation?

In order to provide delegates with a comprehensive diplomat experience, PAMUN 2016 decides to adopt the Group Delegation (GD) system. Originated from many worldwide conference, a group delegation, consists of many delegates, would represent ONE country in different committees.
