Most recent recommendation:

Repeal GAR#179 "Clean Prostitute Act"


Useful Links:
Proposal at Vote
Drafting Thread

Summary:

The resolution-at-vote seeks to repeal the target resolution on the basis of not providing clear definitions on what prostitution or any other types of sex work, limiting its legislative powers to only prostitution and neglecting a broader portion of the sex industry, not providing enough protection against sexual, physical and mental abuse against sex workers and not having effective measures against the transmission of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in place.

Opinion:

The proposal, at a first glance, makes sense. It has been almost a decade since GAR#179 has passed and the resolution itself isn't going to hold against the modern standards the General Assembly community practices in 2021. The repeal arguments does hold some merits; Particularly the Dispirited clause which accurately points out a very valid concern about the well-being of prostitutes and other sex workers. It is, like said before, makes sense at a first glance.

However, digging deeper into it reveals a litany of issues with it yet to be properly explained by the author. First off, the Acknowledging clause states that;

Ga author wrote:Acknowledging the intentions of GAR#179 to insert itself as the be all, end all of legislation on prostitution;

This is untrue. GAR#179 clarified exactly three things; the matter of legalization of prostitution would be left up to individual member nations, regular screenings for STIs would be conducted and sex workers might not engage in any sexual activities if they have been diagnosed with a STI for the duration they suffer. This is hardly the "be all, end all" of legislation on prostitution the repeal is claiming the target to be.

Ga author wrote:Observing that GAR#179 does not introduce any sort of definitions or foundational information on prostitution or sex work, thus rendering itself less credible as a General Assembly Resolution;

This is redundant. Prostitution is the oldest profession there is in history and it has an universal meaning enough to be understood by everybody. It is not some vague term like "green space" where there are thousands of interpretations of it based on your perspective and knowledge. This is clearly not the case here,
as there is very little chance to misinterpret the word "prostitution" or "sex work" into something else.

Ga author wrote:Confused by the resolution’s naive, ineffectual, and very over-simplified solution for limiting the spread of sexually transmitted infection through sex work, placing all responsibility for STI testing and regulation on the sex workers themselves and providing them no protection against clients or other participants in sex work that may transfer an STI to that sex worker;

The first part of the clause makes a bold assumption in saying that the costs of testing for STIs must be given by the sex workers themselves, when the target resolution makes no reference to it whatsoever. For reference,
the addressed clause in the target resolution reads as;

Ga author wrote:REQUIRES that prostitutes working in nations choosing to allow prostitution be regularly screened for sexually transmitted infections and further stipulates that any prostitutes who are diagnosed with a sexually transmitted infection abstain from their work until their infection has been cured.

In this instance, we refer to GAR#97 "Quality In Health Services", which states that the treatment of all medical conditions would be paid by the state, thus absolving the sex workers from this burden and making it redundant again.

Furthermore, GAR#179 does not, at any point, block any future legislation on prostitution, meaning that it is entirely useless to repeal and replace it, which is the author's current goal to do so. This serves as nothing but a waste of time of the General Assembly, time which could be spent better on legislating other crucial areas. Refugia has taken its duties within the World Assembly seriously since its inception and strongly protests any and every waste of time by redundant resolutions blocking the functions of this august chamber.

Recommendation:

As such, the Refugi Office of World Assembly Affairs recommends a vote against Repeal "Clean Prostitute Act"

Read dispatch

For older voting records, see 2019 - 2020

The Office of World Assembly Affairs, unlike most other departments within the Refugia governmental apparatus, has two independent moving parts. The Councillor of World Assembly Affairs works to lead discussions within the region about World Assembly resolutions that are coming to vote or are currently at vote, while the World Assembly Delegate is granted multiple votes through the regional endorsement system to use as the voice of the region on votes before the General Assembly and Security Council.

According to the Refugia Revised Statutes 6(f), the Councillor of World Assembly Affairs is in charge of "facilitating discussions on World Assembly resolutions-at-vote, developing dispatches with Information For Voters (IFV) on current resolutions at vote, and providing regional recommendations for votes to the World Assembly Delegate."

The Councillor is expected to read about upcoming proposals in the General Assembly and Security Council, including possibly commenting in drafting threads and helping authors craft their proposals. The Councillor is also expected to initiate discussions in the Regional Message Board (RMB) on upcoming proposals, giving a summary of the proposal and their initial analysis of it, then facilitating a healthy and open discussion by regional members on that proposal. Once enough discussion has happened (or enough time has passed), the Councillor can craft an Information for Voters, or IFV, dispatch outlining the regional position on the proposal. This can be crafted in whatever way the Councillor desires, though historically it has included a summary of the aims of the proposal, then a personal analysis based on the discussion, and a final recommendation.

The World Assembly Delegate carries a plurality of endorsements in the region. They are able to cast a vote on General Assembly and Security Council resolutions-at-vote totaling the number of endorsements they have + 1 (their own vote). By mandate of the Refugia Revised Statutes, if the Delegate votes against the regional recommendation, they are required to place an explanation in the RMB as to why they have done so. In Refugia, the Delegate is allowed to vote however they like.


The World Assembly Affairs Office has a presence on the RMB, due to over a year of involved WA discussion. The Councillor also oversees a floor in the Admin Tower (floor-5), which aligns with a channel in the discord server with which they can do whatever they feel is appropriate. Historically this has been used for discussion of initial ideas on upcoming proposals or comments about drafting thread posts, but it has also been used to assist Refugi and our friends in drafting our own proposals! If any Refugi wishes for help in drafting or outlining a World Assembly idea, they can take it to floor-5 for feedback and encouragement.

Interested in getting involved? As there is a lot of work placed upon the WAA Councillor in reading, facilitating discussions, and writing opinions sometimes multiple times per week, the Councillor is permitted by the RRS to appoint a second to assist with any of those responsibilities. If you'd like to volunteer to help with anything in the department, let the current Councillor know!

If you reside in Refugia, you can also sign up for the World Assembly and endorse the delegate, assisting with our regional influence at the World Assembly. More information on how the World Assembly works, including more in-depth discussion of the Delegate and endorsements, please check out this 'How Does' dispatch.
