CAIMUN Awards Policy
• Substantive Development – The ability of a delegation to develop substantive documents (e.g. working papers, resolutions, amendments) with the proper structure, grammar, skill and context;
• Accuracy of Policy – Dais staff will be monitoring political and representational accuracy of delegates. This includes rhetoric in speeches and documents, as well as in caucusing and bloc formation;
• Rhetorical Skill – The ability of a delegation to relay the message of their country's policy in the correct terms, as well as the manipulation of dialogue to persuade other delegates toward their position;
• Procedural Manipulation – The ability to manipulate the rules of procedure and institutional legality to the advantage of your country and its policies;
• Cross Simulation Articulation – The ability to work across committee lines to create political leverage, using the press as part of public policy, etc.
Awards themselves are determined by a system of points given to these various attributes. We feel that these areas include the best that Model UN represents. Member States large and small, involved and distant, all have advantages in different areas of these criteria. Our staff are trained to evenly apply this policy.
