The delegates will participate in debates in one of three committees:

The Gulf Cooperation Council, which is designated for the more experienced students, as it will entertain a higher level of debates and detail in topics.

The Security Council, which will also be a higher level committee as it covers critical, in-depth issues.
 
The General Assembly will be hosting more than 100 delegates. The General Assembly is the committee where delegates can best demonstrate their rhetorical and public speaking skills.


The opening ceremony will be attended by high ranking officials, Ambassadors and dignitaries, some of whom will give opening remarks. Following the welcoming note, the gavel will be struck by the Secretary General of the conference signifying the opening of the debate sessions.

The Model United Nations organization at the American University of Kuwait (MUNAUK) has participated in numerous international conferences and received significant awards
The organization also hosted a major political lecture whereby several Parliamentary candidates spoke about their policies and politics prior to the 2009 elections.


This conference is sponsored by platinum sponsors, Zain Telecom, Gulf Bank and Wataniya Airways, as well as gold sponsor, Cinescape.
