2. Requiring any person to work, enter a work contract, or conform to terms of employment, which they have not freely agreed themselves or through a person they have freely appointed to represent them, through such means as abduction, coercion, deception, destitution, or fraud, or threats of such, to themselves or their families, including such acts as violence or criminal damage, or unlawful detention or eviction, shall be considered 'forced labour' and immediately prohibited in all nations;

- required service of wartime prisoners of war and internees, in accordance with international law;
- required national emergency service;
- normal civic duties;

4. Forcing or inducing the transfer of any person against their freely given will, or assisting or financing such actions, through similar forms of coercion, for the purposes of exploitation, such as slavery or forced labour, or situations approximating to such, sexual exploitation, or unauthorised medical procedures, shall be considered 'human trafficking' and immediately prohibited in all nations;

Goods produced, in whole or in part, through servitude shall be permanently embargoed, and all investment and material support to nations, legal entities and persons practicing servitude immediately ended, except as transition assistance or compensated manumission to free people from such conditions;

11. Nations shall take part in a concerted diplomatic effort to end servitude, and to prevent areas having abandoned such from returning to such practices;

12. Nations shall apply due scrutiny to such institutions as industries employing significant proportions of migrant workers, legal or commercial sex industries, industries employing minors, and their national organ donation systems, to identify catalysts to human trafficking, and to work, where necessary in concert with others, to eliminate such.

I'd like to thank...Yelda!

ic: While we applaud the reasons behind your proposal, we can not help but agree with our esteemed colleagues from The Great Chiefdom of Krioval in that, while well meaning, the proposal intent is covered by another, and therefore superflous.

Mei-Dai is referring to a recent violation and was probably not aware of the existence of that resolution. It does cover the recent transgression.

(OOC: Mei-Dai, your proposal writing is getting better. You've got the right idea.)

So male servitude by a female-dominant nation (these nations do exist on NS) is ok?

Unless I am sorely mistaken the Godly Nations is not a member of our esteemed assembly and therefore can ignore our resulutions as they wish. (IC)

"I believe that since the proposal you have submitted, is superceeded by an already passed resolution that it makes your proposal illegal." The UnDelegate looked up from his nearly perpetual game of Solo Whist. "You should have waited to submit it. It will simply be thrown out as I understand it."

Perhaps it may be prudent to instead condemn The Godly Nations for violating the rights of females by subjugating them to subservience? I understand what you're trying to achieve. We believe there may be another way of doing so.

This resolution makes me feel sad. How come you are only banning female servitude? Don't men have rights too?

We believe that the reason it spells out the end to female servitude and not male is likely because the majority of societies with the WA are probably male dominated, to the point where women lack many basic rights. It would be highly unlikely to find the inverse. This is by no means a justification of course.

As has been pointed out, this proposal is pointless because of WA Resolution #23, Ban on Slavery and Trafficking which already covers this.

Its rather like having a resolution on the books that bans whaling, then submitting another that specifically bans killing Blue Whales. Just a bit redundant.
