Abstract

The object of this study is to see if my method of making politics ‘real’ by using in-class simulations and attending Model UN conferences will enable students to see why its not always easy, as we think, for international organizations and bodies to come to a consensus about issues. Issues that we think are non-controversial such as eradicating poverty or lowering infant mortalities. How does one explain the opposite to something that seems so obvious? How does one explain that even with the obvious intents, international bodies are not always as efficient or effective as they ought to be?
