INSTRUCTIONS FOR MOAS FINAL REPORT
1. Your final report for MOAS 17 must be typed and somewhere around five double-spaced pages. It is a good idea to keep good notes during the Model so that you will have the basic ingredients of your paper ready to compose when you return to TSU. Please write it (and proofread it) with the utmost care. [See example of Final Report in Appendix IV]
2. On the Cover Page of your paper, include the following: Your name, Committee Assignment, agenda items that you were responsible for, country assignment and year of Model, resolutions that you wrote that either passed alone or together with other delegations at the Model, and the number of times you co-sponsored other resolutions.
3. The body of your paper should be structured around the following content and sub-headings:
a) PREPARATION STRATEGY. Indicate what you did before the Model and what was most useful in your committee work during the Model.
b) OVERVIEW OF COMMITTEE ACTION. Discuss what topics elicited the most debate, and which delegates were the best prepared and why. If you were successful in getting a resolution passed, be sure to say something about it in your report.
c) TECHNICAL SECRETARY ASSISTANCE. Describe your interactions with the OAS Technical Secretaries assigned to your committee and what benefits you derived from this. My suggestion is that you get to know these people early in the Model and let them know what resolutions you are working on. Be sure to ask them a lot of questions including some about the real OAS that you are simulating in the Model. Delve into U.S.-Latin American relations. Ask them what they think about policy and agenda items that are before your committee. Be creative!
d) BENEFITS FROM MOAS EXPERIENCE. Indicate how the Model experience influenced your knowledge and attitudes toward the member states in the OAS and the problems they confront. What parts of the Model did you like the most and what parts the least?
e) RECOMMENDATION FOR FUTURE MODELS. In terms of preparation strategies and Model experience, specify the kinds of things that could be added or subtracted from the Model for purposes of designing future Models at TSU.
f) RESOLUTIONS PASSED IN YOUR COMMITTEE. At the end of your paper, attach copies of the resolutions that passed in your committee, who voted for and against, and if it passed in the Plenary Session at the end of the Model.
4. Tell me if you want to participate in MOAS 18 (1997). It is possible to receive up to 6 credits for the Model.
