ABOUT TANZANIA INTERNATIONAL MODEL OF UNITED NATIONS.

The participants role-play as diplomats representing a nation values and interests in a simulated session of the United Nations, such as the General Assembly, the Security Council or Caucus Sessions.

The simulations represent an innovative tool to assimilate knowledge of various issues, improve leadership skills and the ability to work in a team, strengthen negotiation skills, acquire a strategic overview and orientate with regard to future choices. Participants research a country, take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult, and then develop solutions to world problems.

These skills include public speaking, group communication, research, policy analysis, active listening, negotiating, reaching consensus, conflict resolution, note taking, and technical writing.
