Issues on the Agenda 2021

Issue on the agenda can be seen below. The research reports for MSMUNQ are breaking new ground and will be in the form of a multimedia presentation which will help guide young delegates to a richer and deeper understanding of the issues on the agenda.

Our student executive team is also pleased to share a delegate preparation guide to help young delegates navigate their way into learning how to analyse, research and think critically about the issues on the agenda from the perspective of their assigned delegations.
