The Office's Analysis

On Interregional Recruitment is a short Security Council resolution with the objective of establishing interregional recruitment standards on a global level. While it may seem adequate at first glance, the resolution has several flaws which we believe lead the negatives to outweigh the positives. The resolution fails to carve our exemptions for anti-fascist counter-recruitment, as well as sets the criteria for other counter-recruitment between user-created regions to be a clear state of war. This, compounded by the fact that the resolution does not sufficiently address the issues of poaching from game-created regions, leads the Office of WA Legislation to advise South Pacificans to vote AGAINST "On Interregional Recruitment".

The more complex issues of recruitment policy and reform beyond the basics of this draft tend to fall more in the site technical category of things. It lays out a fairly uncontroversial interregional position on recruitment that most regions tend to already abide by. Not much flare, but I'm not sure how much flare could come of this resolution, to begin with.]The draft is rather short, though I think it achieves what it is intending to.

A change to a focus on spawners/non-spawners rather than naming feeders/sinkers and UCRs would be appropriate. 2) It is against our interests as a GCR to vote for a Declaration which openly states we are open for recruitment. 3) It provides no protection for GCRs being poached/recruited from for non-newly founded nations, which is still a problem. 4) It provides for no exception for retaliatory recruitment, which is the common mechanism by which the Arnhelm Declaration (the status quo name of this set of norms) is enforced 5) It restricts IC conflictual poaching/predatory recruitment to simply states of war and excludes prolonged states of hostility, which could be another justification. 6) It contains no exception for anti-fascist or anti-hate retaliatory recruiting 7) A better written version of this already exists, has existed for years, and this is unnecessary. It's one thing to pass a Declaration on Anti-fascist actions because there is no somewhat standard and recognized document of norms and international laws on anti-fascist actions. However, there actually is one on interregional recruitment - the Arnhelm Declaration - and this proposal is wildly unnecessary.

Rousseaun argued the following on the Security Council forums.

Rousseaun wrote:1. It would have been far better and more understandable had Khevo defined properly within the resolution what Feeders and Sinkers are. As many (not including myself) may not know what it means. 2. It seems gameplay-stunting to discourage recruitment from regions that aren't Feeders or Sinkers, as it can be a big part of gameplay. I would hesitantly support this but given the choice I will vote against this resolution.
