WA Office | Peace and Sustainable Development

This resolution seeks to establish a World Assembly Peace Prize that would operate in a manner similar to the real-life Nobel Peace Prize. It also creates a "right to development" protecting "non-violent acts taken with respect for sapient dignity which aim towards facilitating the achievement of all sapient rights" and stops member states from permitting humanitarian aid to assist in the perpetuation of "unnecessary armed conflict". Lastly, it also establishes non-binding directives regarding peace-oriented education and abstaining from engaging in wars of aggression.

This proposal is clearly ineffective when it comes to tackling the very real issues of preventing wars of aggression and the atrocities associated with them. The so-called "right to development" introduced within the text does not encapsulate anything that would not already be covered by extant General Assembly legislation. Nor is it sufficiently clear with actions that have trade-offs between different groups.

The clauses pertaining to educating inhabitants about peace and sustainable development and encouraging member states to refrain from wars of aggression are non-binding. And the idea that a nation with opportunity to maximise its power would reconsider its aggressive tendencies merely because people taught them about peace is nave at best.

The final piece of the proposal is its most inconsequential: the World Assembly Peace Prize. The Peace Prize utterly fails to prevent wars of aggression due to its inability to substantively impact affairs on the ground, serving as little more than an extension of soft diplomacy. Even if useful, these prizes also can serve to whitewash the atrocities of people with diplomatic clout or who change their views after the fact.

The World Assembly Office therefore recommends a vote against "Peace And Sustainable Development".

Why was I tagged?!

Current policy emerged from the poll conducted here, which showed a majority supporting telegrams disseminating these messages to all residents. Internally, however, the Office compromised between telegrams which many in the region might find spammy, due to the default limitations of telegram mailboxes and oft-ignored RMB messages.

The above tags were generated automatically by InfoEurope.

You can opt out of tagging by sending a telegram to the Office's WA Secretary or the Undersecretary for Communications. Current staffing information is located in the "STAFF" tab at the top of this page.
