Plagiarism and Pre-Written Resolutions

Any form of plagiarism, pre-written resolutions, or other forms of cheating will not be permitted at FORMUNC. All members of the FORMUNC Staff and Secretariat will be monitoring delegates’ work to ensure that no documents have been copied from another source without the proper citations, or prepared before conference to be submitted as working papers, directives, or other collaborative work. Any instances of suspected plagiarism, pre-written resolutions, or cheating should be immediately brought to the attention of the FORMUNC Secretary-General, and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Any delegates found in violation may be subject to any of the following consequences: disqualification from awards, removal from conference, removal of the delegation from conference with no refund, and prohibition of future participation in FORMUNC.

Violations of any of the above rules will be reviewed on a case-by- case basis, and the offending delegate and/or delegation may be subject to penalties including but not
