General Assembly Proposals

The following are proposals for WA resolutions. Any WA member nation with at least two endorsements can make a proposal, but it will only become a resolution (to be voted on by the entire WA) if it is approved by at least 6% of WA Regional Delegates.

As the WA currently has 1,609 Regional Delegates, a proposal needs 97 approvals to achieve quorum.

Global Healthcare Fund

A resolution to modify universal standards of healthcare.

Category: Health

Area of Effect: Healthcare

Proposed by: British Liberadzulansticcurp

Description: • Recognising that Health Care is becoming a Premium across multiple nations within our world, I feel as the WA representative for Raven Lake that it is my duty to bring to the WA the suggestion of legislation that will bring about a global fund to support healthcare.

• Understanding that this would seem costly, I recommend a small global health tax be introduced. Also realising that this may annoy some as they may not wish to be further taxed, it would hopefully reassure citizens that by paying this tax, they are entitled to immediate access to healthcare when not in their own region regardless of insurance, provided by the funds this legislation would create.

•The funds would be made by a tax increase of 2% on each member of the WA in order to secure the funds necessary for such a policy. Regarding access, the funds would be allocated to travelers and even citizens who for whatever reason can't afford the full premium of healthcare in their sector.

• Reassuring members that this would not infringe upon spending implications any further than the proposed 2% tax, this would remain a flat value with no deviation unless and amendment was made regarding the Global Heathcare Fund.

Repeal "Humanitarian Aid Expansion Act"

A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.

Category: Repeal

Resolution: GA#380

Proposed by: Gidan

Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #380: Humanitarian Aid Expansion Act shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: This resolution is incomplete and as a consequence may contribute to a number of negative developments.

The first problem stems from the definition of "security check," which is defined by "any measure(s) a host nation chooses to take" (in order to verify incoming personnel and aid that cross the host nation's border). Giving a nation justification to implement "any measure" is a dangerous idea. The phraseology of the definition provides legal justification to the host nation for "any measure" the host nation deems fit, which could include measures that take advantage of the generosity of the supporting nations. Without clarification, the Humanitarian Aid Expansion Act could inadvertently lead to the increase in governmental corruption in disaster areas.

Additionally, the resolution includes a number of contradictions, which could lead to a breakdown of efficiency. Namely, the resolution "MANDATES that host nations ALLOW any personnel working with humanitarian organizations that are involved with the relief effort to enter afflicted areas..." This statement alone would require host nations to allow foreign personnel to enter the host nation; however, it is followed by the qualification: "...with all personnel being subject to any extensive security checks imposed by the host nation." This seems to give the host nation power to regulate personnel traffic. To avoid confusion, the resolution would require revision to either state that host nations are required to allow personnel to enter afflicted areas or are allowed to regulate personnel traffic.

Finally, the resolution makes a vital error. It assumes the stability of the host nation's government during a natural disaster. This is enumerated throughout the resolution, namely in the phrase: "If the personnel pass the security checks, the host nation must provide transportation so the personnel can reach the afflicted areas." An unstable government may not always be able to provide transportation to personnel, nor can it always be relied upon to ensure "the maintenance and rebuilding...of essential infrastructure in threatened areas." This should not be a qualification for international support.

The United Kingdom of Gidan recommends the repeal and revision of the Humanitarian Aid Expansion Act.
