10   Fully aware of the current emphasis placed on nuclear deterrence by countries possessing
11          nuclear arms, and
12
13   Alarmed by the threat that a rogue spear would pose to all countries.
14         Note: Nuclear deterrence is the fact that the threat of nuclear retaliation prevents
15                other countries from firing nuclear weapons. A rogue spear is a nuclear
16                weapon that has been stolen and could possibly be detonated.
17
18   Noting with deep concern the threat of a depressed trajectory shot poses to cities
19          positioned near oceans, specifically Washington D.C. in America.
20          Note: A depressed trajectory shot refers to the war-game scenario in which an
21                  enemy nuclear submarine approaches the shore and fires a nuclear missile
22                  at a city.
23
24   Be It Hereby Resolved That The General Assembly:
25
26   1. Requests the proliferation of all nuclear weapons.
27
28   2. Further requests that the members of the United Nations place a ban on all future
29      nuclear weapons.

25
26   Be it hereby resolved that the Generally Assembly:
27
28   1. Strongly encourages the Security Council to determine the type of weapons used by
29      all UN peacekeeping forces extremely carefully, keeping in mind all possible risks of
30      violations of human rights and popular sovereignty.
31
32   2. Calls upon the Security Council to withdraw all peacekeeping forces from the
33      involved areas in the event of a conflict escalating into war, civil or otherwise.
34
35   3. Encourages the Security Council to more clearly define the jurisdiction of the UN
36      peacekeeping forces that it deploys.
37
38   4. Require that all UN peacekeeping forces report frequently, including weekly verbal
39      reports and monthly written reports from each active UN peacekeeping operation, to
40      the Legal Committee to ensure that UN peacekeeping forces do not violate human
41      rights or a nation’s popular sovereignty.
42
43   5. Strongly suggests that, if POL/SEC deems any reported or suspected act by UN
44      peacekeeping forces as a questionable violation of human rights or a nation’s popular
45      sovereignty, a local war tribunal hears the case and acts appropriately upon it.

 5
 6   8. Further encourages the Security Council to set a time frame as a goal for the duration
 7      of each peacekeeping operation that it deploys and to reevaluate the usefulness of the
 8      operation and the successfulness of it at the end of the period before reemploying
 9      troops for the peacekeeping operations.
10
11   9. Expresses its hope to in no way preclude regional organization previously recognized
12      by the UN or any individual nation from becoming involved in a given peacekeeping
13      operation as they see necessary due to its violations of the UN charter, its
14      infringement on human rights, or its violation of popular sovereignty unless they are
15      deemed by the Security Council as a threat to peace and security.

11   Aware of the fact that the EP-3E ARIES II aircraft belongs to the United States no matter
12         what condition it is in, and
13
14   Realizing that the Chinese are becoming increasingly aggressive in their interception
15          tactics against American planes in international airspace, and
16
17   Confident that the damage to the American EP-3E ARIES II is the result of the reckless
18         and aggressive flying tactics of the Chinese F-8 pilot, and
19
20   Taking into account that all monetary expenses which resulted from the crash would not
21         have been necessary had the crash not occurred, (such as cost of plane sent to
22         recover the 24 Americans, and cost to repair the American aircraft).
23

13
14   Realizing that the trade deficit in Cuba will only increase unless something is done, and
15   that the people are suffering in the meantime, and
16
17   Recalling that the US embargo was put in place forty (40) years ago and is based upon
18   outdated, now hypocritical principles, and
19
20   Alarmed by the lack of action in both the United States and the United Nations, and
21
22   Whereas the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) has again recommended an end
23   to the embargo (October, 1998, 53 d GA session), with a vote of 157-2-12, but not taken
24   any action, even though the embargo violates eight (8) UN resolutions, and
25
26   Reflecting that, should the embargo be lifted, both countries would greatly benefit,
27
28   Be It Hereby Resolved That The General Assembly:
29
30   1. Recommend the United States exclude the embargo on food and medicine.
31
32   2. Recommend the United States completely lift the embargo and adopt a more
33      consistent humanitarian policy of alleviating human suffering.

16   Aware of the unacceptably low literacy rate amongst the people of Mali, and
17
18   Alarmed by the fact that the literacy rate is 3 1 %, and
19
20   Convinced that student teachers would be willing to go over to Mali and teach for less

12
13   Realizing that the more literate people there are in Kuwait, the more sophisticated Kuwait

23      sending a team of member teachers to better inform Kuwait’s schooling
24      administration on how to teach more effectively
25
26   2. Recommend that member countries loan money to help fund schooling to make it
27      easier to get an education in Kuwait

18      1. A new formula for enforcement of human rights on free speech on the Internet
19         should always be taken into strong consideration, and strict interpretation should
20         be upheld and this formula be base on two criteria:
21
22             a. The misinterpretation of human rights on the internet- free speech shall no
23                longer be tolerated within governmental regulations, and personal beliefs,
24
25             b. The misguidance of governmental regulations have mislead many citizens
26                in believing their personal beliefs, or rights guaranteed to the people by
27                the government which may also interfere and bring about strong military

10
11   Acknowledging that several members of the UN are delinquent in their dues, and
12
13   Noting that the UN’s current budget of 1.3 billion annually is insufficient, and

 8   Date:                 December 12, 2000
 9
10   Conscious of the need for electricity to maintain a reasonable standard of living, and
11
12   Alarmed by the threat that the burning of fossil fuels poses to our environment, which all
13         Earth’s people have a responsibility to tend, yet
14
15   Aware that exploitation of the numerous technologies available to supplant fossil fuels
16         are beyond the economic or technological means of many nations, and also
17
18   Aware that means do exist to cleanse the polluting smoke that results from burning fossil
19         fuels, particularly coal, but such “scrubbers” are far too expensive to be viable for
20         most of the world’s states, and additionally
21
22   Concerned about the inevitable though distant time at which Earth’s reserves of fossil
23         fuels will be depleted, and
24
25   Anxious to prevent acid rain and other negative environmental consequences of burning
26         coal without disregarding the needs of all consumers of electricity, and
27
28   Believing that hydroelectric power offers a renewable, pollution-free means of doing so,
29
30   Be it Hereby Resolved by the Security Council:
31
32   1. To inquire of all members of the General Assembly at the next plenary session if they
33      would wish aid in developing hydroelectric power in their respective lands.
34
35   2. To establish a commission of five experts, one from each permanent member of the
36      Security Council, to examine the viability of hydroelectric dam construction in the
37      interested nations.
38
39   3. To, in nations where hydroelectric construction is deemed reasonable, offer the
40      commission’s technological assistance in such construction.
41
42   4. To consider, on an individual basis, the merits and means of providing funding for
43      such construction in nations approved by the commission, upon request of those
44      nations.

 7   Submitted by:          Italy
 8   Submitted to:          Political & Security Committee
 9   Date:                  March 27, 2001
10
11   Fully Aware that some UN peacekeeping troops, funded by the UN, work outside of their
12          bounds, violating nation’s rights to popular sovereignty and citizens’ rights,
13
14   Realizing that UN peacekeeping troops are not directly responsible for the actions they
15          take while serving on official UN peacekeeping operations to an international
16          court or to a committee of the UN.
17
18   Noting Chapter VII Article 49 of the UN Charter that states that all involved parties in a
19          given conflict must agree to the terms of the peacekeeping operations,
20
21   Noting further that the UN peacekeepers are under command to use violent force only in
22          the event of a threat to their own life or to the life of a fellow UN soldier,
23
24   Recognizing that UN peacekeepers are employed to maintain peace, not establish peace,
25
26   Be it hereby resolved that the Generally Assembly:
27
28   1. Strongly encourages the Security Council to determine the type of weapons used by
29      all UN peacekeeping forces extremely carefully, keeping in mind all possible risks of
30      violations of human rights and popular sovereignty.
31
32   2. Calls upon the Security Council to withdraw all peacekeeping forces from the
33      involved areas in the event of a conflict escalating into war, civil or otherwise.
34
35   3. Encourages the Security Council to more clearly define the jurisdiction of the UN
36      peacekeeping forces that it deploys.
37
38   4. Require that all UN peacekeeping forces report frequently, including weekly verbal
39      reports and monthly written reports from each active UN peacekeeping operation, to
40      the Legal Committee to ensure that UN peacekeeping forces do not violate human
41      rights or a nation’s popular sovereignty.
42
43   5. Strongly suggests that, if POL/SEC deems any reported or suspected act by UN
44      peacekeeping forces as a questionable violation of human rights or a nation’s popular
45      sovereignty, a local war tribunal hears the case and acts appropriately upon it.

 1   6. Strongly encourages the ratification of the ICC.
 2
 3   7. Strongly suggests that, upon ratification of the ICC, the ICC assumes the role of the
 4      local war tribunals in all cases deemed questionable by POL/SEC.
 5
 6   8. Further encourages the Security Council to set a time frame as a goal for the duration
 7      of each peacekeeping operation that it deploys and to reevaluate the usefulness of the
 8      operation and the successfulness of it at the end of the period before reemploying
 9      troops for the peacekeeping operations.
10
11   9. Expresses its hope to in no way preclude regional organization previously recognized
12      by the UN or any individual nation from becoming involved in a given peacekeeping
13      operation as they see necessary due to its violations of the UN charter, its
14      infringement on human rights, or its violation of popular sovereignty unless they are
15      deemed by the Security Council as a threat to peace and security.

11
12   Deeply Disturbed by the lack of cooperation between People’s Republic of China and the
13          United States, and
14
15   Believing that the hostage and plane should have been returned immediately, and
16
17   Recognizing People’s Republic of China’s record of violating human rights and
18         international law, and
19
20   Convinced that this is only another example of People’s Republic of China’s
21         unwillingness to cooperate in a manner consistent with that of a member of the
22         UN.
23
24   Be It Hereby Resolved By The General Assembly:
25
26   1. Demand the return of the plane immediately.
27
28   2. Recognize the twelve nautical mile limit to Chinese airspace as defined under
29      international law.
