No, and because of Resolution #299 (clause 4) it can not do so. WA-imposed one-size-fits-all age limits for anything are barred, such limits are purely a national matter.

Two questions today.

One: Is it legal to force an individual member state to create a committee (sort of in the same way there is a large list of GA-wide committees but as an individual member nation thing)?

Two: Is it legal to mention a previously repealed resolution in a later resolution, given that the resolution is repealed and cannot be un-repealed?

I'm guessing that's a no on both counts tbh but I just want to check :}

You can't target only "an individual member nation". It is legal, however, to force "each & every member nation" to create a committee (or agency, or whatever)for itself, as long as the functions specified for those committees do not themselves break any of the rules.

Thousand Branches wrote:Two: Is it legal to mention a previously repealed resolution in a later resolution, given that the resolution is repealed and cannot be un-repealed?
If you're mentioning its repeal as justification for a replacement then potentially (depending on how you word that reference) it could be legal.

You can also be oblique about it: like, say, "ADMIRING the World Assembly's historical appreciation of the field of numismatics..." as a reference to GAR #56. Not everything has to be explicitly spelled out.

Pacific Settlement of Disputes

Postby JAIBHARAT » Fri Nov 19, 2021 6:26 am

Pacific Settlement of Disputes
Article 1
The parties to any dispute, the continuance of which is likely to endanger the maintenance of international peace and security, shall, first of all, seek a solution by negotiation, enquiry, mediation, conciliation, arbitration, judicial settlement, resort to regional agencies or arrangements, or other peaceful means of their own choice.
The Security Council shall, when it deems necessary, call upon the parties to settle their dispute by such means.
Article 2
The Security Council may investigate any dispute, or any situation which might lead to international friction or give rise to a dispute, in order to determine whether the continuance of the dispute or situation is likely to endanger the maintenance of international peace and security.

Article 3
Any Member of the United Nations may bring any dispute, or any situation of the nature referred to in Article, to the attention of the Security Council or of the General Assembly.
A state which is not a Member of the United Nations may bring to the attention of the Security Council or of the General Assembly any dispute to which it is a party if it accepts in advance, for the purposes of the dispute, the obligations of pacific settlement provided in the present Charter.
The proceedings of the General Assembly in respect of matters brought to its attention under this Article will be subject to the provisions.
Article 4
The Security Council may, at any stage of a dispute of the nature referred to in Article or of a situation of like nature, recommend appropriate procedures or methods of adjustment.
The Security Council should take into consideration any procedures for the settlement of the dispute which have already been adopted by the parties.
In making recommendations under this Article the Security Council should also take into consideration that legal disputes should as a general rule be referred by the parties to the International Court of Justice in accordance with the provisions of the Statute of the Court.
Article 5
Should the parties to a dispute of the nature referred to in Article fail to settle it by the means indicated in that Article, they shall refer it to the Security Council.
If the Security Council deems that the continuance of the dispute is in fact likely to endanger the maintenance of international peace and security, it shall decide whether to take action under Article or to recommend such terms of settlement as it may consider appropriate.
Article 6
Without prejudice to the provisions of Articles 1 to 5, the Security Council may, if all the parties to any dispute so request, make recommendations to the parties with a view to a pacific settlement of the dispute.

This thread is for questions about the GA. What's your question?

Also, this, if it's intended as a proposal, is illegal on all sorts of counts, but primarily plagiarism. Please don't plagiarise.

OOC: Out of Character, used when a player is speaking as themselves and not as their fictional nation or anyone in it.
IC: In Character, the opposite of OOC.
Etc: Et cetera, Latin for "and the rest".
Romans 1:18-2:29, Ephesians 2:1-10
But God’s angry displeasure erupts as acts of human mistrust and wrongdoing and lying accumulate, as people try to put a shroud over truth. But the basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! | Those people are on a dark spiral downward. But if you think that leaves you on the high ground where you can point your finger at others, think again. Every time you criticize someone, you condemn yourself. | It’s a wonder God didn’t lose His temper and do away with the whole lot of us. Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love, He embraced us. He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. He did all this on His own, with no help from us!

I know what etc. means, but with etc. I meant to address other shortenings. Still, thank you very much.
