The [b][colour=#3A8CDE]Office of World Assembly Affairs[/colour][/b], unlike most other departments within the Refugia governmental apparatus, has two independent moving parts. The [b][colour=#3A8CDE]Councillor of World Assembly Affairs[/colour][/b] works to lead discussions within the region about World Assembly resolutions that are coming to vote or are currently at vote, while the [b][colour=#057505]World Assembly Delegate[/colour][/b] 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 [b][url=https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=1200707][colour=#0C7C97]Refugia Revised Statutes[/colour][/url][/b] 6(f), the Councillor of World Assembly Affairs is in charge of "[i]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.[/i]" 

The Councillor is expected to read about upcoming proposals in the [b]General Assembly[/b] and [b]Security Council[/b], 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.

[hr]

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.

[b]Interested in getting involved?[/b] 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 [url=https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=1491682]'How Does' dispatch[/url].
