TIMUN 2020 – Dress Code
TIMUN 2020 – Conference Code of Conduct (CCC)
All delegates are expected to remain “in character” while at TIMUN by consistently advocating the interests and representing the policies of the country assigned.
To act “in character” also entails displaying respect for the opinions and ideas of fellow delegates, even if these opinions and ideas conflict with a given delegate’s own country’s priorities.
Delegates are expected to prepare adequately for active participation in committee sessions; delegates in committees with two topic areas are expected to prepare for both, with the understanding that the committee will discuss one or both topic areas during TIMUN.
Delegates found to be in violation of TIMUN’s Security Policies may be barred from further participation at TIMUN and/or expelled without refund at the discretion of the Secretary-General.
Delegates who disrupt committee sessions or other conference events may be barred from further participation at TIMUN and/or expelled without refund at the discretion of the Secretary-General.
Delegates who antagonize hotel guests or otherwise “disturb the peace” may be barred from further participation at TIMUN and/ or expelled without refund at the discretion of the Secretary-General.
All Faculty Advisors are responsible for the safety, wellbeing, and conduct of their delegates. The educational quality of TIMUN is primarily dependent on all delegates’ active and professional participation. Faculty Advisors can ensure this by monitoring their students’ attendance at committee sessions and helping them understand the skills of diplomacy as practiced at TIMUN.
During the conference, Faculty Advisors are encouraged to attend Faculty Advisor meetings and feedback sessions, to observe their students from the back of committee rooms, and even to advise students on substantive issues. However, participation in the committee process must be left to the delegates and the TIMUN staff. Faculty Advisors may not participate in the writing of resolutions or in caucusing activities or otherwise engage in the committee process.
Faculty Advisors are also required to assist the TIMUN staff in enforcing Security Policies, Dress Code, and the TIMUN terms and conditions with regards to their school’s delegates.
TIMUN will not tolerate any instances of harassment or discrimination based on race, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, age, or disability.
Further, TIMUN will not tolerate any instances of inappropriate behavior or unwelcome advances of a sexual nature. If any delegate, staff or advisor believes they have encountered harassment or discrimination, which results in a hostile working environment or disparate treatment, they must bring it to the attention of the Secretary-General or another member of the Secretariat.
The Secretary-General must then investigate the merits of the allegations, and interview all parties involved. Based on the findings of the investigation, TIMUN may:
Take no action;
Issue a verbal reprimand;
Expel the offending individual from TIMUN without refund;
Bar the delegation of the offending individual from future participation at TIMUN; and/or,
Take other actions as deemed necessary and appropriate.
