Additional Questions
12. A delegate or group of delegates have continually submitted to the dais a working paper that calls for actions to be taken that the committee cannot take (ie an ECOSOC trying to send peacekeepers into a conflict area, or the Human Rights Council trying to amend the UN Charter). After informing them two times that their language is calling for actions that the committee simply cannot take, the delegates resubmit the paper without changing this section. How would you react? Would you accept the paper as a Draft Resolution?

13. Please look at the sample working paper provided in Word. Make sure that Track Changes* is on and edit the paper as if it has just been submitted to you for the first time during committee session. You can find the sample working paper here.

*Note: If you don’t know how to turn on Track Changes, you can find it under “Review” in newer versions of Microsoft Word, and under “Tools” in older versions. If you don’t have MS Word, please find another way to show your edits in the original file.
