I really hope there is, but there is an amazing opportunity if there isn't.


Nope. Not remotely an international issue.

I find it to be kind of disgusting we don't legislation on it.

I am going to make a proposal out of it.

The issue is that since all reasonable nations would already have criminalized murder, there's no need to make an international law that says the same. So it's not really an international issue.

Leave that for their actual thread.

Hi,

I was recently appointed as the World Assembly Delegate for my region, though I'm quite new to NationStates and especially new to the World Assembly and being the delegate for my entire region. What should I do/know to get started, and is there any reading someone could suggest on this topic?

Thanks greatly.

Welcome to the fun world of delegacy! There are now two extra ways you can influence the World Assembly.

Firstly, proposals. Every WA member may submit a proposal. The proposals must be approved by 6% of regional delegates, which at time of posting is 78 of 1,299. You are now one of that 1,299 and have the opportunity to approve proposals before they reach the voting floor.

Secondly, when proposals do reach the voting floor, a delegate gets one vote, plus one vote for each endorsement they have. Nine nations in my region have endorsed me, so my vote in the World Assembly counts as 10 votes.

Please not, however, that many of the proposals submitted are actually 'illegal' under the GA's rules and precedents, so it might be a good idea for you to read the proposal-writing rules (which are in another sticky in this forum) before deciding which proposals to approve...
