A position paper is a breakdown of your country's position on the given topics.

Position papers help significantly to organise your research and prepare your speeches.
The deadline for submitting your position paper is 10 days before the conference (11th February). Your position paper need only be a page long and must include your country's position on all the topics to be discussed within your committee.
