Filing Tips

Filing is an extremely important part of both the preparation for and the presentation at an MUN conference. It is very important to be able to prove or discredit one’s point, with reliable documents. As you probably already learned, you will be researching A LOT for the next few weeks. This information will be useless, however, if you do not set a way to keep things organized. There is not a “right” way to file, but you can follow some of these tips that can help you to maintain organization, and therefore, helping you to be ready for any defense – or even an offence!

  • Have a folder with dividers;
  • Separate your material by:

- Issues;

- Events;

- Countries

  • Label each divider by issues/event/country
  • Know and highlight the source and date the document/article was published;
  • Have a huge file over your country, and subdivided by general info, events, pros, cons, relationship towards other countries, etc.
  • Keep this handbook in your folder as well, so you can come back to it if you have any questions about procedures, etc.
  • Don’t forget to highlight and make annotations in all the information you have. Know the documents, and take advantage of them!

Keeping track of what’s where will give you more time to debate, as well as a factual and more specific speech!
