Press Team

If you are keen on journalism and international issues the press team is created for you. Participating as a journalist or a reporter is different than participating as a delegate in other committees. A journalist should keep tracking what is happening during the committee sessions in order to write articles. Your articles have to stick to the different political position of Medias that will be simulated by the Press Team. Moreover you will interview the delegates about the progress of the debates into their committee (adoption of a resolution, the use of the veto of a country etc). MUNICE tribune, the media platform of MUNICE, will be at your disposal as well for the publication of your articles. Do not forget that ‘Fourth Estate’ refers to news media. Your article may change not only the flow of the debate but also the adoption of a resolution.
