Position Papers

Ready to view your position papers? Select your committee and delegation to view the correct position paper.

A White paper acts as an open statement of a government's policy (similar to a press release) and should be about 1 page in length for each topic, whereas a Black paper is a confidential, internal document for delegates to state their strategic interests for a particular topic and should be a half page in length for each topic.

Committees should write both a White paper and a Black paper. If a Committee lists more than two topics, delegates only need to choose two to write about. Cabinets only need to write a Black paper; if a Cabinet doesn't list specific topics, they should plan to write one paper about what they think is most important from their background guide.

For more information on Position Papers, check out our Delegate Guide (pg. 14)!

Thank you for taking the time to submit position papers. White papers will be available for viewing on the website this afternoon. We look forward to seeing you at CIMUN XIX.
