Model United Nations Software (MUNS)

MUNS, or Model United Nations Software,  is a simple tool that has been developed by DuEMUN to assist members of the dais in Model UN Conferences. It enables MUN organizers to largely automate formal debate and caucuses, essentially allowing a single person to run even a large committee without further assistance.
In addition to its administrative utility, MUNS also provides the committee with real time status updates. You will never have to use a blackboard again!

This MUN tool has been tailored for the DuEMUN rules of procedure and might perform differently than expected by your delegates. We recommend to put it to a thorough test before using it productively.
