Vote Recommendation: For
This proposal seeks to repeal GAR#554 "Safety and Integrity in Conflict Journalism" for problematic and significant loopholes. The repeal specifically calls out clauses 1b and 1c (when combined with clause 2b) for notably flawed definitions, and clause 3 for failing to fully protect conflict journalists.
The Ministry agrees with the statements that the target is a subpar resolution with multiple issues. The lack of consideration of the kinds of journalists beyond those employed via contract (such as freelance journalists), combined with the target's insufficient protections for journalists severely hinders the proper execution of GAR#554's goal. In addition, the target creates a severe loophole protecting espionage and preventing regulation thereof, legislating beyond the scope of itself and causing issues for member states. GAR#554 is clearly a problematic resolution, and one worth repealing.
For the above reasons, the Ministry of World Assembly affairs hereby recommends a vote For the General Assembly Resolution at vote, "Repeal: 'Safety And Integrity In Conflict Journalism.'"
