The simulation exercise includes groups of representatives from the South Asian and Middle Eastern countries who are tasked to find some resolution of the Palestinian issue. The meeting is facilitated by the UN Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People. Each country will be provided with a set of guidelines on their foreign policy and what their position is on the issue. But once in the exercise, they have to negotiate with each other to develop a draft resolution, take vote on it and then issue a statement. The non-academic community could join the students (country representatives) and work with them, or just observe their performance.
