[Abandoned Draft] The Conventions on Citizenship

Postby Hejmlan » Fri Jan 19, 2018 12:33 am

The World Assembly,
Noting all individual people as inheriting inalienable rights,
Understanding that habitants of many nations are without citizenship, or are designated as “non-persons,” relegating them to second class status, and
Upholding the moral principles guiding this Assembly,
Demands that all member nations shall provide, guarantee, and defend without condition, the following rights to all their citizens, or per equivalent:

1. The right to

2. And the right to renounce citizenship and apply for the citizenship of another nation.

(Draft unfinished)

"It is WA convention to put line breaks after each clause to make the proposal easier to read."
A representative democracy with a parliament of 535 seats
Currently centre-right on economy but centre-left on social issues
Located in Europe and border France to the right and Spain below
NS stats and policies are not canon, use the factbooks
Not in the WA despite coincidentally following all resolutions
This is due to a problem with how the WA contradicts our democracy
However we do have a WA mission and often participate in drafting
Current ambassador: James Lewitt

For more information, read the factbooks here.

OOC: Welcome to the GA forum!

I'm glad you posted your idea here rather than submitted it rightaway like most newbies do. This way we can give you advice on how to make your proposal legal and better, or let you know that it's already been dealt with or that it's a non-issue or something that will never pass.

In this case, the right to emigrate is already a WA resolution, so that would be duplication.

You can find the passed resolutions here: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=30
The thread is easy to search with keywords. Here, for example, if you had searched with "emigration", you would have found GA #279, Right of Emigration. As for citizenship, have a look at these (I hope the link works).

In addition to existing resolutions, all proposals must also abide by the proposal rules, which include a category and a strengt or area of effect (some categories have strengths while others have AoEs). You can find the proposal rules here: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=159348
Categories and their effects are explained in the second post of that thread.

Also, remember that not everyone's nation's population is all or even in part human, and that things that are big problems in Real Life, might not be big problems in NationStates.

Category and strength? And anyone can claim citizenship of any nation they choose? I'm not quite understanding this. I also note that there is a resolution already on Reducing Statelessness.

The right to claim citizenship of a nation,

Pretty sure this would contravene the immigration laws and policies of, well, every nation ever.
