World Assembly Resolutions

Since the rise of the World Assembly from the ashes of its predecessor, the Bureaucracy That Cannot Be Named, WA member nations have worked tirelessly to improve the standard of the world. That, or tried to force other nations to be more like them. But that's just semantics.

Below is every World Assembly resolution ever passed.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION # 208

Resolving WA Trade Disputes

A resolution to reduce barriers to free trade and commerce.
 

Category: Free Trade

Strength: Significant

Proposed by: Auralia

Description: Recognizing the numerous benefits of international trade to the economies of all World Assembly member nations,

Regretting that trade disputes between member nations serve as a barrier to international trade, resulting in severe political and economic consequences,

Believing that it is therefore in the World Assembly's interest to establish an impartial mediation and arbitration body tasked with resolving international trade disputes,

Realizing that failing to do so would constitute a extreme hazard to national populations,

The General Assembly,

  1. Mandates that all member nations involved in a trade dispute enter into independent bilateral or multilateral negotiations, as appropriate, for a reasonable length of time in order to make a good faith attempt to peacefully and amicably resolve the issue;

  2. Extends the mandate of the World Assembly Trade Commission to include non-binding mediation and binding arbitration services for international trade disputes rooted in a member nation's violation of international trade law or its own national laws;

  3. Clarifies that such mediation and arbitration may only occur:

    1. with the initial explicit, uncoerced consent of all the member nations involved in the dispute, and

    2. after any independent bilateral and multilateral negotiations have failed;

  4. Stipulates that such mediation and arbitration must proceed as follows:

    1. the World Assembly Trade Commission must assemble a mediation or arbitration panel, consisting of unbiased adjudicators with the required qualifications and experience to fulfill their duties,

    2. the member nation which requested mediation or arbitration must present the panel with a legitimate allegation that a member nation involved in the dispute has violated international trade law or its own national laws, and that this violation is a chief cause of the dispute,

    3. each member nation involved in the dispute may present arguments and evidence pertaining to this allegation to the panel, and must comply with any reasonable request made by the panel for evidence necessary to make an informed ruling on the allegation,

    4. the panel will consider all evidence presented and present a ruling detailing whether the allegation is true, as well as any actions on the part of member nations required to remedy the issue,

    5. any member nation involved in the dispute may appeal a recommendation or ruling by the panel, on the grounds that the evidence presented was improperly considered, to a separate appellate panel, which will release a final ruling or recommendation based exclusively on the evidence presented to the original panel;

  5. Authorizes the World Assembly Trade Commission to impose any applicable financial penalties on member nations which consented to the arbitration process but refused to comply with a final ruling by an arbitration panel or its corresponding appellate panel, as appropriate.

SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION # 94

Repeal "Liberate Benevolent Capitalism"

A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
 

Category: Repeal

Resolution: SC#92

Proposed by: Skyrim diplomacy

Description: WA Security Council Resolution #92: Liberate Benevolent Capitalism shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: The Security Council,

RECOGNIZING the intent of SC#92 to remove the raider-imposed password blocking entrance to Benevolent Capitalism and restore the region to the native nations,

APPLAUDING that SC#92 has achieved this goal and removed the password from Benevolent Capitalism, allowing the rightful inhabitants of the region to return and reclaim power in the region,

FEARING, however, that allowing SC#92 to stand will only pose a threat to Benevolent Capitalism and the natives within in the future by disallowing the natives to impose a password for safety,

AFFIRMING that the natives of Benevolent Capitalism wish to see SC#92 struck down,

HEREBY REPEALS SC#92, Liberate Benevolent Capitalism.

SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION # 95

Liberate Christmas

A resolution to strike down Delegate-imposed barriers to free entry in a region.
 

Category: Liberation

Nominee (region): Christmas

Proposed by: Mahaj wa seat

Description: The Security Council,

NOTING that the region of Christmas was raided by forces of Asgard, The New Inquisition, and The Land Of Kings and Emperors on July 4th, 2012;

AWARE that Christmas is a region which many people treasure due to its special name;

RECOGNIZING that while the native community in Christmas was not large and has been forcibly removed, it is still deserving of the basic rights of freedom of movement and to be free from external governance;

DISAPPOINTED by the stated goals of Asgard, which are to refound the region and keep it as a colony;

BELIEVING that the Security Council must act swifly to protect Christmas from being stolen and kept as a colony;

HEREBY Liberates Christmas.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION # 209

World Assembly Trade Rights

A resolution to reduce barriers to free trade and commerce.
 

Category: Free Trade

Strength: Strong

Proposed by: Auralia

Description: Regretting that World Assembly member nations often face harmful and unnecessary barriers in their trade with other member nations,

Emphasizing that these barriers ultimately serve as obstacles to the economic prosperity of all member nations,

Recognizing that these barriers therefore constitute a serious hazard to national populations,

The General Assembly,

  1. Grants the following rights to each member nation:

    1. the right, for a good or service originating from said nation, to receive the most favourable trade preference from any other member nation that said other nation grants to any other member nation for the same type of good or service,

    2. the right, for a good or service originating from said nation, to have applied the same taxes or regulations by any other member nation that said other nation applies to the same type of good or service of domestic origin, at least once the good or service has legally entered that nation,

    3. the right to create or maintain existing free trade areas or customs unions, so long as such areas or unions ultimately lower trade barriers between their members, not raise trade barriers for non-members;

  2. Clarifies that member nations may suspend their individual responsibilities under the above provision in the following cases:

    1. in the event of a significant disparity in labour, environmental or human rights standards, or to ensure reasonable quality control on goods and services, but only if such a suspension does not constitute discrimination between goods and services from different member nations with similar issues,

    2. to apply domestic subsidies, or to protect domestic industries against a discriminatory subsidy applied by another member nation, so long as any retaliation in the latter case is directly proportional to the original subsidy,

    3. to protect vital national security interests during serious international disputes or times of war, or

    4. to develop any other additional reasonable and appropriate trade regulations that are consistent with the goals of this resolution, as well as the interests of sustainable development and poverty reduction, either unilaterally through domestic legislation or collectively through World Assembly resolution.

SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION # 96

Repeal "Condemn Kalasparata"

A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
 

Category: Repeal

Resolution: SC#42

Proposed by: Milograd

Description: WA Security Council Resolution #42: Condemn Kalasparata shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: THE SECURITY COUNCIL,

RECOGNIZING that Kalasparata was condemned for being a threat to global peace, for disregarding human life, and for wantonly utilizing weapons of mass destruction,

ACKNOWLEDGING that the nation of Kalasparata ceased to exist after the World Assembly Security Council condemned it, and thus can no longer commit human rights violations, recklessly use weapons of mass destruction, or exist as a threat to global peace,

NOTING that, contrary to what Security Council Resolution #42 states, Kalasparata was never truly a formidable threat, insofar as its military and strategic arsenal was rather small in comparison to many of the world's nations,

FURTHER NOTING that the validity of the claims regarding Kalasparata's human rights violations and the scale of them are questionable, since these reports were often not confirmed by outside sources or made elsewhere other than in arguably biased factbooks and articles concerning national information,

REALIZING that the condemnation of Kalasparata fails to acknowledge the many positive aspects of Kalasparata's society, such as the fact that the government was fairly liberal and democratic,

BELIEVING that resolutions that are outdated, misleading and superfluous deserve to be repealed,

HEREBY REPEALS the condemnation of Kalasparata.
