Hello delegates,

I was researching around the internet and stumbled upon this website: http://www.atimes.com/
I recommend it as a good starting point for research due to a few significant articles.

Best regards,
The delegation of China. Smile

Basic Numbers, its a CIA (american) based site, which in this case does not represent a problem, as its all raw data:
https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/

The True UN, its the official UN site where you can find previous resolutions to base yours upon (take a look around):
http://www.un.org/en/

UN Charter (dont read it all, just search for specific sections that can be important for your resolution):
http://www.un.org/en/documents/charter/index.shtml

For More information of countries, BBC-based, really good:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/country_profiles/default.stm

For topics there is nothing better than the major news sites:
CNN,
BBC,
The Times,
The Economist (more economical, but well written and reliable).

There is also the english version of an individual country`s major newspaper, not all countries might offer this, but its interesting to understand the topic as described by a specific country (Its still hard to find good chinese articles on the 1989 Tiananmen square)

I know all these might seem overwhelming, but its easy to follow all of the recent news on the topics if you use programs like google alerts:
This program will send you an email with all the recent news on anything:
http://www.google.com/alerts?hl=en

Just be careful with how broad your search topic is, depending on it this might become quite a bother.


Good Luck,
Max Mottin

Delegate Rafael and Chairman Max,

Indeed the sites that both of you posted on this very efficient forum will be of very good use to both the State of Japan and its delegates, and all other delegates of the Asian caucus. In fact, if delegates from all other caucuses wish to be informed of the situation or information about Asia, they will be glad that they have been able to. The delegation of Japan would like to publically thank the inniciative of both enlightened beings and would also like to encourage other delegates to roam the internet to find good sources and post them in the SALMUN forum so that all delegates can experience the pleasure that the prior delegate of Japan is feeling right now. With small steps as these taken by the delegate of China and the Chairman Max, is that we will be able to make the Asian caucus the indeed most fruitful and successful at this wondrous conference that will take place.

Cheers,

Delegate Lomanto.

Dear delegates,

The delegate of China would like to warn you, that as our dear chairs have stated, some websites might be biased.
For example, a website from the United States talking about Iraq will probably be biased, so it is a good idea
to find other websites from different sources to recheck the information you get from such website. Good luck
with your research delegates, and let's all try to be prepared for this SALMUN!

With heart,
The Delegation of China
