Committee: Security Council

Question of: the Censorship of the Internet

Submitted by: China

Believing in the potential dangers of uncensored internet usage,

Noting with disapproval the phenomenal number of malicious websites available on the internet,

Confessing to the lack of education available to citizens about the dangers of internet usage and misuse,

Resolving to provide a solution to the issue that does place the impetus on citizens to protect themselves,

Committed to providing governments with the means and resources to decide which websites cannot be safe for their subjects,

Appalled by the lack of UN or US leadership in the field of universal internet safety,

Troubled by the freedom of companies to post whatever they deem safe without certified advice or fear of reprimand,

Denying claims that China’s only aim is to censor the internet and news consumption of its subjects,

  1. Calls for powers to be put in place that allow governments the freedom to decide what their population can and cannot see through the internet;
  2. Recommends the creation of an international body called the Online Moderation of Freedoms Group (OMFG) that will;
    1. meet regularly to monitor internet usage and recent developments that may threaten internet usage,
    2. liaise with internet firms to decide upon the best means to implement any suggestions,
    3. propose these suggestions to governments to allow states to make informed decisions about what sites citizens are permitted to visit,
  3. Supports the United Nation’s efforts to draws up a set of universal laws to govern companies which utilise the internet which would protect the morality of content of sites as well as the security of data collected;
  4. Further recommends that the OMFG provide expertise and personnel to both governments and internet companies to aid in the inauguration of these laws;
  5. Implores that these laws be drawn up within the set time period of twelve months and implemented within the set time period of twenty four months;
  6. Requests that each government will produce and publish a list of websites that are deemed inappropriate for their citizens and effectively ban them within the laws set out in clause 3;
  7. Trusts that the corporations behind these companies with withdraw their services from states that had deemed then inappropriate;
  8. Urges states to monitor in totality the internet usage and browsing history in order to inform their choices of the websites listed under clause 6;
  9. Further urges states to report their findings to the OMFG;
  10. Resolves to continue the censorship of media for the protection of Chinese citizens.
