Vote Recommendation: For
"Prohibition of Unwarranted Digital Surveillance" seeks to outlaw unnecessary digital surveillance and prohibit member states from maliciously using data. It covers loopholes which would allow foreign governments and private companies from doing surveillance on behalf of governments.
This proposal is clear and effective in executing its intent, and stops member states from using private entities to circumvent the resolution. Under this resolution, member states would be forced to respect citizens' digital privacy within reason, while still being able to protect national security and gather digital evidence on suspected criminals. There are further exemptions made to guarantee that the scope of this resolution does not extend beyond what is intended, prohibiting unwarranted digital surveillance.
For these reasons, the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends voting For the at-vote General Assembly proposal,, "Prohibition of Unwarranted Digital Surveillance."
