LASER Policy Conference

March 9 @ 12:00 pm


Our 2024 Policy Conference will be held at Bermondsey Village Hall, London SE1 3TD – and online – on 9th March, starting at 12 noon. If you want to join by zoom, please register here. Registrations for attending at the hall are here.

This is your chance to help decide what stance the Region should take on a wide range of international issues. Resolutions need to be on an international topic and must call for action by the UK government or the UN. They can also set out background facts or statements of concern that you would like the Region to support, and they can be put forward by UNA Groups or individual members. You can see our current resolutions – for inspiration and for the framework we use – here. New resolutions need to be 175 words or fewer in total. You can also suggest amendments to existing resolutions which should add not more than 75 words to the total length of the resolution.

If there are no objections, the Policy Committee will make minor edits (to bring them up to date) to Resolutions:
– 7. Financial levy for clean water (remove reference to the 2016 US election)
– 8. Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) (remove reference to the Chief Executive election May 2022)
-12. Nuclear weapons (remove reference to June 2022 conference).

The following need updating because things have moved on. We would welcome proposals to help the Policy Committee prepare a draft of a new policy for Resolutions:
– 9. How did Dag Hammarskjold die?
– 14. Our world after the pandemic
– 17. Proposed laws restricting boycotts, divestment or sanctions
– 20. Refugees and Asylum Seekers in London hotels and elsewhere
– 21. Second Voluntary National Review of the UN Sustainable Development Goals

The Policy Committee will prepare new merged and updated draft resolutions on which amendments can be submitted in the second round of submissions (by 26th February) on:
– Climate Change (combining Resolutions 4, 5, and the AGM Resolutions)
– Israel/Palestine (combining Resolutions 15, 29, AGM Resolution)
– Ukraine

Please send in draft policy resolutions to our Policy Committee Chair by 5pm on Monday 29th January. We shall then share the draft agenda with you in the February Pulse for which you will be able to send in amendments by 26th February.
