Model of Arab African Summit (MAAS)

It is a simulation of the Arab African Summit. In the MAAS, Participants step into the shoes of Leaders from the black continent in and the Arab nations to debate current issues on the organization’s agenda. While playing their roles as ambassadors, “delegates” make speeches, prepare draft resolutions, negotiate with allies, resolve conflicts, and navigate the Model of Arab Africa conference rules of procedure – all in the interest of mobilizing international cooperation to resolve problems that affect countries in the Middle East and Africa.

Before playing out their roles in a Model simulation, students research the issue that their committee will address. Participants learn how the international community acts on its concerns about topics including peace and security, human rights, the environment, food and hunger, economic development and globalization. The delegates also look closely at the needs, goals and foreign policies of the countries they will represent at the event.

The insight you gain from this unique experience from the exploration of history, geography, culture, economics and science contribute to the authenticity of the simulation when the role playing gets underway. The more in-depth knowledge of your country guarantees a lively and memorable experience.
This is in addition to meet new people, enhance your public speaking, gaining expertise, Negotiation skills, Leadership, Teambuilding, Creativity, and Confidence.

A Model delegate is a participant who assumes the role of an ambassador to the Arab African Summit in a Model simulation. Prior to a conference or event, a Model delegate does not need extensive experience in regional relations. Anyone can participate in the Model, so long as they have the ambition to learn something new and to work with people to try and make a difference in the world.

Please log into your account and select your role from the Role Tap.

Once reviewed, you will receive a personal confirmation from one of our coordinators, who may ask you for additional information.

You should provide us with an updated CV.

A research paper about “Prospects of cooperation and integration between Arab African states” is required in English with the following specific criteria:

  • Paper should not exceed five pages long
  • Font: Times New Roman (14) for English papers
  • Author details at the end of paper (Full name, email address, mobile number, country of residence, passport number)
  • List of References.

Researching is the first and most important step in preparing for a conference. It is also important to understand the Model body that your committee is representing.

Dressing professionally and appropriately is an important aspect of Model Arab African Summit preparations. Just like being polite and having proper manners, dressing appropriately is an important way to show respect for the nation you are representing and for your fellow delegates. At some summits, delegates may wear their own national dress; however, most conferences require western business attire.

Business apparel is required during all sessions, meaning suits for men and business dress for women.
