[PASSED] Nuclear Material Safeguards

Postby Imperium Anglorum » Thu Feb 05, 2015 4:44 pm

Nuclear Material Safeguards
Category: International Security | Strength: Mild

Affirming the right of member nations to possess nuclear weapons and to use them in the case that they are attacked by hostile forces,

Concerned that there does not yet exist any legislation to protect the manufacture of nuclear weapons from being banned by the World Assembly,

Observing that there are more than six times more non-WA nations than member nations and believing that such protections are necessary for the security of member nations,

This august World Assembly hereby:

  1. Maintains the right of member nations to manufacture and trade nuclear weapons or reactors, to possess the materials required in such manufacture, and to acquire the materials required in such manufacture;

  2. Maintains the right of member nations to have knowledge of the manufacture and trade of nuclear weapons or reactors, to possess such knowledge, and to acquire such knowledge;

  3. Mandates that member nations take all practical actions to safeguard the manufacture and knowledge spoken of in the first two clauses from the wrong hands, especially those which conspire against the stability of member nations; and

  4. Directs the Nuclear Energy Safety Commission (NESC) to ensure that nuclear materials and knowledge are secured from the wrong hands by providing funds and assistance to nations which are unable to defend their own nuclear knowledge and technology.

I'll admit I was hasty. The hole which existed after repeal, I never expected, would remain. The ambiguous wording in the 2nd draft's first clause, is, I feel, problematic. I can see it both ways. To avoid a repeal based off that argument, I've given this draft for consideration.

Nuclear Materials Safeguards
Category: International Security | Strength: Mild

Affirming the right of member nations to possess nuclear weapons and to use them in the case that they are attacked by hostile forces,

Observing that there does not yet exist any legislation to protect the manufacture of nuclear weapons from being banned, and believing that such action is necessary,

This World Assembly hereby:

  1. Mandates that the manufacture of nuclear weapons or reactors, possession of the materials for the manufacture, and ability to acquire said materials by the legitimate governments of member nations is not to be prohibited;

  2. Mandates that the knowledge of the manufacture of nuclear weapons or reactors, the possession of such knowledge, and the ability to acquire said knowledge by the legitimate governments of member nations is not to be restricted except in extraordinary cases of clear and present danger;

  3. Requires that member nations safeguard the manufacture and knowledge spoken of in the first two clauses from the wrong hands;

  4. Directs the Nuclear Energy Safety Commission (NESC) to ensure that nuclear materials and knowledge are secured by providing funds and assistance to nations which are unable to defend their nuclear technology, for example, in the case of terrorist infiltration or state collapse;

  5. Establishes the Universal Nuclear Library under the purview of the Universal Library Coalition to avoid basic accidents in nuclear design and increase safety by providing such knowledge to states pursuing nuclear technologies as well as knowledge necessary for the prompt cleaning of accidents; and

  6. Prohibits undue regulations on facilities, companies, and universities on their activities regarding the first two clauses given that such knowledge is safeguarded per the third clause.

Nuclear Materials Protection Act
Category: International Security | Strength: Significant



Acknowledging the right of member nations to possess nuclear weapons and to use them in the case that they are attacked by hostile forces and nuclear reactors for the production of energy,

Recalling this Assembly's landmark stance on nuclear technologies in its 10th Resolution, the 'Nuclear Arms Protection Act', and its 308th Resolution, the 'Nuclear Arms Protocol', and,

Believing that rectification of the failure of the World Assembly to protect the manufacture of nuclear weapons in the past, which has been a pursued method for the banning of nuclear weapons, is necessary,

This World Assembly hereby:

  1. Mandates that the manufacture of nuclear weapons or reactors, the possession of the materials for the manufacture, and the ability to acquire said materials by the legitimate governments of countries is not to be prohibited;
  2. Mandates that the knowledge of the manufacture of nuclear weapons or reactors, the possession of such knowledge, and the ability to acquire said knowledge by the legitimate governments of countries is not to be restricted;
  3. Directs the Nuclear Energy Safety Commission (NESC) to ensure that nuclear materials and knowledge are secured by providing funds and assistance to nations which are unable to defend their nuclear technology, for example, in the case of terrorist infiltration or state collapse;
  4. Mandates that due to the risks of nuclear testing, this Assembly boosts the budget of the Nuclear Testing Oversight Agency (NTOA) to ensure that any increase in nuclear testing is conducted safely and without undue effects on civilian populations, wherever they may be;
  5. Establishes the Universal Nuclear Library under the purview of the Universal Library Coalition to avoid basic accidents in nuclear design and increase safety by providing such knowledge to states pursuing nuclear technologies as well as knowledge necessary for the prompt cleaning of accidents; and
  6. Prohibits undue regulations on facilities, companies, and universities on their activities regarding clauses (1) and (2).

Your Nuclear Security Convention only deals with the unauthorised release of nuclear materials, technology, or information and the transfer of such materials, technology, or information within the purview of actions both 'necessary and practical' to prevent proliferation.

This deals with the manufacture and design of such weapons/reactors and gives your NSC teeth with a more powerful NESC and NTOA while also attempting to prevent the occurrence of nuclear disasters.

Your point 3, restricting civilian knowleadge of nuclear reactors. Quite distasteful to a nation that allows its citizens access to a vast array of knowledge, including how to repair and refuel their personal reactors.

Also the urge to bite and consume other resolutions, turning them into zombies as well. Also Shepard was as near dead as possible to be revived, any futher and they're not who they were or are zombies. :)

We are confused about one clause in this proposal:
Requires that member nations safeguard the manufacture and knowledge spoken of in the first two clauses from the wrong hands;

Who exactly are the "wrong hands" here? Last we heard, Omigodtheykilledkenny already had a nuclear weapons program.

OOC: And this is now in queue. That was quick. But either you done goofed on your wording in that first clause or you've waaaaaaay overreached here....

IC:

(The Wads come storming into the debate chamber. Ari, his face red, trembles with anger as he speaks.)

What the fuck is this bullshit? Are you serious? You CANNOT be serious! The manufacture of nuclear weapons can't be prohibited? We damn well will prohibit the manufacture of nuclear weapons within our borders, just like we prohibit the manufacture of any other weapons! Not you or anybody in this universe is going to say otherwise! Unbelievable that this attained quorum....

(Arya whispers in Ahume's ear; Ahume nods and whispers in Ari's ear and points.)

What? Hmmm.... yes. We shall be filing a protest with the Secretariat on this immediately. Anything that prohibits nations like ours from banning the manufacture of weapons within our borders cannot possibly be mild in scope.

What I've gotten out of it is that the World Assembly cannot prohibit Member States from acquiring the Materials, and Equipment necessary to produce nuclear weapons. I'm going to have to ask for some elaboration on this one, I don't quite see where your objections might lay.

While we don't share the Wads'... Zeal, in opposing this, the Imperium cannot offer its support at this time. Quite honestly, we see no need for this Legislation to exist.

All OOC (I'll make more sense that way):

Clause 1 is very poorly worded:

1. Mandates that the manufacture of nuclear weapons or reactors, possession of the materials for the manufacture, and ability to acquire said materials by the legitimate governments of member nations is not to be prohibited;

A strict reading says that manufacture of nuclear weapons cannot be prohibited. So, I can't have a national law that says that the manufacture of all weapons are prohibited within my nation, because this resolution would force me to allow the manufacture of nuclear weapons within my nation. (Yes I can loophole that away with creative compliance but that's not the point.)

Forcing me to allow the manufacture of nuclear weapons in my nation, as well as mandating the dissemination of technical information in clause 2 and the removal of restrictions in clause 6, override whatever minimal (blocker-ish, one might say) safeguards are put forward in clauses 3 through 5, making this more of a Free Trade resolution than a Int Sec one. Regardless of category, there's no way that something like this, which mandates that nations cannot legislate within their borders on the manufacture of nuclear weapons, is mild strength.

It would have to be 'Mandates that the manufacture of nuclear weapons or reactors ... by the legitimate governments of member nations is not to be prohibited'. That means that what is prohibited is the manufacture of nuclear weapons by your nation. You can prohibit the manufacture of nuclear weapons for anyone who is not the legitimate government of your nation, then not manufacture nuclear weapons. This is really easy and there is nothing wrong with this clause.
