EXCLUSIVE: EU to pass a merged resolution

The UK is satisfied with the European Union committee's conclusion



The atmosphere in the European Union committee room was light and cheerful this morning for a good reason: member states are set to pass a merged resolution as the conclusion of the sixty-first session of the Harvard National Model United Nations conference.


The United Kingdom, alongside France, Denmark, and Poland, and the Czech Republic, is behind the resolution that focuses on immigration. The second one, which is co-sponsored by Austria, Spain, Germany, and Italy, brought sophisticated clauses on Frontex to the merged deal.


“Our clauses on immigration are more developed, but then their clauses on Frontex are better. So we’re taking the best parts of the two and putting them together,” the UK delegates told The Guardian.


This weekend, the committee discussed the Euro and immigration – the latter a highly controversial and dividing topic back at home. It seems as though the UK managed to implement a framework that will make both Eurosceptics and EU supporters happy.


“It’s been a very productive committee, we passed some good directives and resolutions, so we’re pretty happy with what’s being accomplished,” the UK says.


“It’s going to be the only paper on the floor so we expect to pass it with a large consensus.”


On the topic of debt, member states clashed over the Eurobond. However, the UK and France created a system in which member states can share the debt by issuing bonds, which can then be used to issue money to indebted countries such as Greece, Italy, or Portugal.


As an in-depth look at the clauses on immigrants, a particularly controversial reason for disagreement between the UK and the EU, the paper creates a comprehensive framework for immigrants in which a country does have to take more people in if it does not want to.


“We still try to keep ourselves a little separate because UK politics are different from EU politics. While we will continue working with them, we are not going to fully submit to them,” the UK delegate assured.


In fact, the United Kingdom delegate added that all measures are optional, allowing leeway for more Eurosceptic countries.


“Members will not be penalized for not choosing to take part of them, but when they are beneficial we encourage all those involved to adopt them.”


Following an incident during the conference which involved the delegates from France, UK, Italy, and Germany being kidnapped by ISIS, member states decided to emphasize the European identity rather than divide over the issue of growing incidents of terrorism-related cases in the West.


With this new framework, the EU has managed to successfully create a resolution that will satisfy the sometimes contradictory needs of member states while keeping Europe united.


“We’re emphasizing the European identity instead of the national identities while making sure we’re not eliminating diversity. We’re all in the EU, we’re all different but at the end of the day we’re all humans.”
