The General Assembly encompasses all 193 Members of the United Nations, posing this unique forum at the deliberative, policymaking, and representative core of the UN. Established under the original 1945 Charter of the UN, the GA was conceived alongside the birth of the UN and captures the all-encompassing spirit of multilateral discussion that motivated the formation of its parent international organization.

Because of the organ’s inclusiveness, and therefore far-reaching influence, GA resolutions have often taken on the role of landmark documents reflecting the UN's commitment to international issues and serving as a manifesto for solving these issues. At WorldMUN, the GA is distinguished by well-moderated, fluid debate, passionate delegates, and necessarily intense and productive caucusing to forge broad alliances to sustain innovative draft resolutions.
