Frequently Asked Questions
Q5. My friend and I are planning to join IHKMUNC 2021 as single delegates. Will we be assigned to the same delegation when our countries preference are the same?
You and your friend may be grouped into the same delegation. WHO & DISEC are in the single or mixed delegation, delegates in the same team might be assigned to double delegation when necessary; UNHRC is in double delegation, each 2 delegates in a team should choose the same preferred country and committee to be paired up.
However, if there are 3 or more delegates have the same countries preference as you and your friend, the country assignment will be done based on the written assignment. Therefore, you are advised to sign up as a team with your friends! if you would like to work together in a double delegation, you can put yourselves next to each other on the application form, like Head Delegate and delegate #2, or #3 and #4, etc.
Q6. There are two topics for each committee. Do I have to prepare for both our assignment and during the conference?
Delegates will vote on the topic they would like to discuss in the beginning. However, usually there will not be enough time to cover both topics. Therefore, you will discuss one topic only at the committee. For the assignment, you will need to write your position papers on both topics.
