RESEARCH REPORTS

RESEARCH REPORTS HAVE NOT BEEN RELEASED YET!

 

Each topic has a comprehensive report written by the expert chair assigned to that topic. The reports have all been proofread and vetted through multiple revisions, yet there may still be some inaccuracies. We strongly urge you to expand your research beyond the report and to ensure the stance you formulate is in line with that of your delegation's actual stance in the United Nations.

 

Disclaimer: The ideas and information produced in the reports are those of the individual Student Officers and do not necessarily represent the views of the SAIS or SAISMUN organizations. 

 

Reports may be viewed for the entire committee on one single Google Documents file. Simply click the "View the Research Reports!" button under your assigned committee. If you have any issues, please contact us.
