World Assembly Peace Prize
A resolution to slash worldwide military spending.
Category: Global Disarmament
Proposed by: Tinhampton
Whereas all sapient rights are put in danger wherever unnecessary armed conflict occurs, the General Assembly hereby:
a. establishes the World Assembly Peace Prize, hereinafter the Prize,
b. tasks the WA Commission on Human Rights with:
i. receiving nominations for the Prize from anyone who works as a head of state or government, legislator, or professor in any member state, in addition to any leaders of member state delegations to the World Assembly; and disregarding nominations with the effect of such individuals nominating themselves, their co-workers or their employer for the Prize,
ii. awarding the Prize each year to that person or group of people resident in any member state who has been nominated in accordance with Article b(i),
iii. basing its decision to award the Prize to any given person or group solely on whether, in its view, they have demonstrably contributed more than any other such person or group in the previous year to the resolution, without violence and with respect for all sapient rights protected by international law, of major conflicts between and within nations which involved or could have realistically involved large-scale acts of violence, and
iv. rewarding (each of) the winner(s) of the Prize in each year with a medallion containing one ounce of 99.9% pure silver and of one-and-a-half inch diameter, which shall have on its obverse the words "WA PEACE PRIZE - WITH PEACE COMES FREEDOM" surrounding the logo of the World Assembly, and on its reverse nothing,
c. forbids members from confiscating any rewards bestowed upon Prize winners under Article b(iv) for any reason not enshrined by prior and standing international law, and
d. encourages all members to refrain from organised armed conflict which is not necessary to prevent practices (such as terrorism, genocide, and other crimes against humanity) that threaten the achievement of all sapient rights.
