This proposal seeks to replace the repealed Access to Scientific Knowledge. It establishes the International Scientific Cooperation Agency (ISCA) with the goal of supporting "the free exchange of scientific ideas". The ISCA would collect peer-reviewed research from nations, allow participating nations to see the submitted research of other nations, host symposiums, and give out grants. The proposal also includes safeguards to ensure that the ISCA remains free from political influence and bias and that all submitted research is held to strong ethical standards.
The Ministry of World Assembly Affairs values the advancement of science and the cooperation of nations in the process. The ministry supported the repeal of Access to Scientific Knowledge because of "the need for ethical research and proper respect for confidentiality". This proposal resolves both of those issues. It requires all submitted research to follow national and international ethical standards, as well as to undergo peer review. It also ensures sufficient confidentiality for member states without allowing states to benefit from the ISCA without contributing anything by implementing a tradeoff: if a member state chooses to withhold certain research, the ISCA will withhold some research from other nations. While confidentiality remains an option, it comes at the expense of access. Thus, the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends a vote FOR this proposal.
