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 # 106
Assitance Givers Protection
A resolution to develop industry around the world.
Category: Advancement of Industry
Area of Effect: Tort Reform
Proposed by: Bergnovinaia
Description: The WA:
RECOGNIZES that in the event of an emergency, first responders and trained personnel typically handle the situation in attempt to save the person(s) in danger,
REALIZING that in certain instances, first responders may not immediately be on the scene of the emergency. Nonetheless, the emergency victims need immediate attention so passer-by step in to help,
DEFINES these passer-by as Assistance Givers (AGs),
APPALLED that even after the AGs attempt to help the emergency victims, occasionally the victims will file a civil suit against the AGs, even if no harm was caused by the AG,
NOTES that it should be every nations right to determine if citizens can or cannot file civil suits against other citizens, organizations, or other establishments for certain reasons,
BELIEVES however, that protection against said lawsuits toward a AG should be implemented in those nations that allow civil suits,

GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION # 108
For the Wrongly Convicted
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
Category: Human Rights
Proposed by: The Ainocran Embassy
Description: Recognizing that as the wheels of justice turn sometimes the innocent are wrongly convicted of crimes.
Realizing that many sentences are later overturned for various reasons such as new evidence, witnesses, or new methodology but only after the accused has spent time incarcerated.
Noting that in most cases the individual suffers massive financial mental and social hardship or is rendered indigent by these circumstances and their records are tainted by these accusations for years to come.
MANDATES full restoration of all rights and privileges that would have normally been accorded them.
REQUIRES that any wages or social welfare lost during the time of incarceration, or, if both are not applicable, a reasonable amount arrived at by negotiation, be made in reparation to the victim of any case of wrongful conviction and imprisonment by a government.
REQUIRES that any wage or welfare restitution amount be adjusted for the normal cost of living increases for the time of incarceration.
PERMITS those wrongfully incarcerated to bring civil litigation against the government for the purpose of seeking a higher amount of restitution.

SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION # 28
Commend Sionis Prioratus
A resolution to recognize outstanding contribution by a nation or region.
Nominee: Sionis Prioratus
Proposed by: Quadrimmina
Description: THE PEOPLES OF THE WORLD ASSEMBLED,
NOTING that the delegation of Sionis Prioratus worked tirelessly to pass resolutions in our hallowed halls to establish an inalienable access to pharmaceuticals for the benefit of sapientkind (GA#41) in addition to quality health services (GA#97) which no doubt improved the international quality of life by combating disease and illness all across the impoverished world,
FURTHER NOTING that the delegation of Sionis Prioratus also succeeded in resolving a lack of education in the most impoverished member-nations with a basic education program (GA#80) and the advancement of scientific education (GA#48),
REMEMBERING the international contributor of these ambitious projects as a courageous and venerable international federalist that was not afraid of providing assistance to those who needed it when those who claimed sovereignty over them did nothing to prevent their suffering,
ENDEAVORING not to commemorate Sionis Prioratus's international accomplishments as 'supererogatory' but instead to commemorate Sionis Prioratus for showing us how we can all make the world a better place if we make the effort to do so,
BUT NEVERTHELESS ACUTELY AWARE that if the betterment of the world that the delegation has ensured was not enough to indefinitely enrich the lives of the neglected, this commendation immortalizes a fearless and amiable spirit in our hallowed halls forever via the inspiration it will ensue to the next generation of General Assembly authors,
CELEBRATING the enormous service that Sionis Prioratus provided to the world as a means to communicate the warm gratitude from all those who have benefited from the social work of the Sionis Prioratus delegation,
HEREBY COMMENDS Sionis Prioratus.

Rights of the Orphaned Child
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
Category: Human Rights
Proposed by: Sanctaria
Description: The General Assembly,
SADDENED by the reality that many parents die before their children reach their national age of maturity;
BELIEVING that the care of these orphaned children is of the utmost concern, in accordance with this Assembly's belief that a child has a right to have access to nourishment, clothing, basic education and healthcare, shelter and to be free from violence and abuse;
CONCERNED that some nations may not have legislation in place to accommodate any orphans pursuant to the aforementioned beliefs;
DEFINES, for the purpose of this resolution, an orphaned child as a being under the national age of maturity whose parents are now deceased and those who have been abandoned by their parents from the time of their birth until such a time they either reach the age of maturity, or are reclaimed;
FURTHER DEFINES, for the purpose of this resolution, a guardian as a citizen above their national age of maturity, assigned by the nation to care for the orphaned child until they reach the age of maturity;
MANDATES that in the event of a child being orphaned, the primary guardian(s) will be an elder sibling who has reached the national age of maturity or, failing such a sibling, another person(s) designated by the parents in the event of their death;
DIRECTS that failing the existence, willingness and/or competency of a primary guardian, the orphaned child shall be entrusted into the care of the State, a State-run body or a body that has been sanctioned to do so by the State, as appropriate;
ORDERS that all orphaned children entrusted to the care of the State, or equivalent as outlined above, be treated with, and provided with, the same dignity and rights of those who are still in the care of their parent(s)/primary guardian(s);
STRONGLY URGES that the State set up an Adoption Agency Board, or equivalent, to re-house the orphaned children with a vetted family or person(s), in order to provide the orphaned child with a stable home and otherwise normal childhood;
STRONGLY RECOMMENDS that if the number of orphans in a family exceed just the one, that the orphaned siblings be kept together in the event of their re-housing;
FURTHER RECOMMENDS that the State provide bereavement counselling and/or other support services to the orphaned child in order to better help them cope with the traumatic and saddening loss of their parents, and finally
AFFIRMS the right for orphans to request the State, or relevent authorites, for information regarding the medical history, or information in general, of their biological parents while at the same time affirming the right of their biological parents to refuse releasing information which may pertain to their identity.
