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

* REPEALED *

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 AG’s attempt to help the emergency victims, occasionally the victims will file a civil suit against the AG’s, 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,

MANDATES the following:
Article I:
1) Any AG who attempts to help an emergency victim in need shall be exempt from a civil suit towards them from the emergency victim, their family, or any person(s) or organization(s) that represent them provided the information in article 1, sections 2 and 3 are adhered to.
2) Any AG shall not attempt to help an emergency victim if a) They are unsure of what actually occurred in the situation at hand or b) Do not have proper training to perform any tasks that need to happen in order to help the emergency victim.
3) A AG forfeits this right if harm is caused to the emergency victim and if the emergency victim, or another other person(s) or organization(s) have viable proof that the harm was intentional.
Article II:
1) Any trained medical professional who arrives at the scene of an emergency by chance is confident that they can in some way help an emergency victim is required to help the emergency victim to the best of their ability until other trained personnel arrive.
2) If this trained medical person does not have proper apparatus and is not confident that they can improvise, they are not required to help any emergency victim if the procedure could potentially harm them.
3) All of Article 1 applies to medical professionals who are not called to an emergency scene.
Article III
1a) Requires member states to provide basic education of certain situations and first aid to those who seek it;
1b) Allows for member states to implement mandatory basic education of certain situations and first aid training for citizens to partake in.
2)The content of these courses may be determined by the nation based on common emergency situations but the following are highly encouraged: treatment of open sore wounds (i.e. gunshots), CPR, treatment of infectious poisons, and how to operate life saving equipment.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION # 108

For the Wrongly Convicted

A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
 

Category: Human Rights

Strength: Significant

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.
REQUIRES that all persons who are vindicated of a crime in such a fashion have their records completely expunged of the incident by their respective governments.

MANDATES full restoration of all rights and privileges that would have normally been accorded them.
DECLARES that a minimum amount of financial restitution must be made to any victim of wrongful imprisonment and conviction by a government.

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.

Notes that these standards are only the minimum and nations are always free to enact laws granting greater restitution should they deem it necessary or desirable.

REQUIRES that should a person perish in state custody and is exonerated post-mortem, that restitution as defined in this resolution either be:
a) Given and distributed by the Estate Trustee either with or without a will as per domestic law governing estates or
b) Given to the family who shall determine the distribution of the restitution based on local customs and/or religious traditions.

SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION # 28

Commend Sionis Prioratus

A resolution to recognize outstanding contribution by a nation or region.
 

Category: Commendation

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.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION # 109

Rights of the Orphaned Child

A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
 

Category: Human Rights

Strength: Mild

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;

Hereby

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.
