Rhodesia subject of model United Nations

Rhodesia subject of model United Nations

A Model United Nations General Assembly meeting on Rhodesia will be held at Victoria University, in the Easterfield Council Rooms, on May 24-25.

It is being organised by NZUSA along the lines of similar meetings arranged by other national student bodies.

Each participant will represent one particular member country, and it will be his or her task to put forward that country's views on Rhodesia.

The object of the meeting is to stimulate thought on the issue of Rhodesia, and secondly to create a greater awareness of the functions and workings of the United Nations.

On the first day background papers on the United Nations will be presented.

Speakers include Mr. B. M. Brown, the director of the New Zealand Institute of International Affairs, and Sir Leslie Munroe MP, who will speak on New Zealand and the United Nations.

Background papers to the Rhodesian situation will also be presented.

Mr. R. M. Robinson, First Secretary of the Canadian High Commission will speak on international political implications.

Mr. S. S. Greg, the president of the N.Z.-Rhodesia Society, will present the case for the Smith Government.

Other speakers will consider the international legal implications of the issue, and the case against the Smith Government.

The second day will be devoted to the model General Assembly. Participants will present "position" papers, then debate motions previously put forward.

Participants may select the particular country they wish to represent.

Information sheets and registration forms are now available at the Students Association Office.

There is no fee for participation.
