General 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 # 164
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
Category: Civil Rights
Proposed by: Topid
The General Assembly,
Recognizing the existence of diplomatic missions like consulates and embassies which serve as a representation from one nation
Understanding in many nations the laws may be confusing to understand for a common citizen from another culture and that a representative from the diplomatic mission of one's home nation may make the law more clear,
Realizing that nations may also accuse a citizen of a crime falsely and that governments way want to hear evidence from the citizen that he or she is being falsely accused so the government may protect its citizens abroad,
Knowing that those citizens of a nation convicted of a crime in another nation may also wish to speak to a representative from their home nation's diplomatic mission to inform their government on conditions within the prison or to seek advice on appeals,
Defines for the purposes of this resolution:
The "home nation" as the nation the accused holds citizenship in.
The "host nation" as the nation that has accused or convicted the foreigner of a crime.
A "diplomatic mission" as an embassy, consulate, or other formal representation of the home nation.
Declares a person charged of a crime while in a member nation as a non-citizen has the right to meet with a representative from their home nation's diplomatic mission within a host nation, should such a diplomatic mission exist,
Allows host nations to require these meetings to occur off of the actual grounds of the diplomatic mission, to prevent a situation where the accused refuses to leave the building the host nation is not allowed to access,
Encourages nations to staff diplomatic missions with legal experts in the host nation's laws to be able to advice their citizens accused of a crime within the host nation,
Further declares that foreigners convicted of crimes and imprisoned within member states have the right to meet with a representative of their home nation's diplomatic mission privately, within the prison, once per year, should such a diplomatic mission exist.
General Assembly Resolution # 165
A resolution to promote funding and the development of education and the arts.
The World Assembly,
RECOGNIZING the goal of this body, the General Assembly, is to improve the world,
BELIEVING the best way this can be done is for delegations to be educated, both now and in the future,
CHOOSING, in this resolution, to focus on future potential delegations, namely children,
BELIEVING that people, including children, should be educated about the World Assembly, and the best way to do this is through simulations of the World Assembly,
REQUIRES member nations to educate people about the role and doings of the World Assembly,
CREATES the organization to be known as the Model World Assembly, or MWA for short,
IDENTIFIES MWA as a simulation of WA meetings and discussions,
RECOMMENDS that nations implement national MWA conferences, which are gatherings where people simulate a WA discussion with the goal of passing resolutions and 'improving the world', and also where they can learn and practice proper diplomatic behavior,
ENCOURAGES individual schools in nations to implement MWA clubs in their school,
CREATES an international MWA conference to be held, here at the World Assembly Headquarters, where people from all over the world can engage in a simulation of WA discussion, using proper diplomatic behavior,
HOPING that with the creation of MWA, more children will be interested in the WA and more educated about the WA.
General Assembly Resolution # 166
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #162 “On Humanitarian Aid” (Category: Civil Rights; Strength: Significant) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
ACKNOWLEDGING that humanitarian aid is an important international issue and that the World Assembly strives to promote and protect humanitarian aid missions,
RECOGNIZING the importance of providing protection to humanitarian aid workers within conflict areas,
DISMAYED that "On Humanitarian Aid" does not reflect the realities of humanitarian aid missions and the volatile conflicts in which they are undertaken,
DISAPPOINTED that "On Humanitarian Aid" revokes legal protection from any humanitarian aid worker who engages in self-defense against militants, which is a policy that will fundamentally harm the viability of humanitarian aid missions in the future,
WORRIED that "On Humanitarian Aid" does not sufficiently address the concept of "neutral zones" and that the arbitrary declaration of neutral zones may destabilize a conflict or risk the lives humanitarian aid workers,
DETERMINED to prevent the harm of humanitarian aid workers and promote the success of humanitarian aid missions through a more effective and appropriate resolution,
The World Assembly hereby repeals "On Humanitarian Aid."
