Fashioned on the actual UN, the Model United Nations has "delegates" from different countries in various committees state their positions on certain issues within the committees, negotiate with other countries to side with them in order to have their resolution passed. The Bryanston Debaters represented Saudi Arabia on ineffectiveness of UNSC and South Korea on Global Migration. The Saudi Arabia delegation won a bronze award for best delegation.
