Engaging the United Nations is an accessible introduction to the UN and a guide to prepare for a Model UN simulation. Each chapter is introduced by a comic that relates the parallel stories of two young women, one a refugee on the receiving end of international institutions, and the other a recent college graduate whose work shows the bureaucratic side of the UN. Each chapter has three sections: Content, which discusses theory, history, and facts like a standard textbook; Skills, which focuses on the essential skills of research, writing, effective communication, and diplomacy needed to excel as a delegate to a Model UN conference; and Exercises, which explores these skills in a classroom setting. The plight of refugees is central to the narrative of the comic portion of the text, and a portion of the proceeds of this book will be given to refugee assistance efforts.
