UN Secretary General - 2006

Recommended Posts

I know I'm new here, but I absolutely love to play Presidents Forever and so many more of the 270soft games. The reason I'm here is that I'm pondering that, which of the games would be better for the creation of a UN Gen-Sec scenario? I know the UN is highly intricate with the security council and general assembly, but could this be done? I've tinkered with a scenario on P4EV 2008, and I only bring this up to the more skilled scenario creators for simple advice and a curious hope for some help. Thanks.

Hopefully to get some discussion to actually occur, here is a large list of possible candidates. The names in italics are those that have been created in the scenario, while all the others are the numerous possible that could have run or had been mentioned in some form or another. As for the "political parties", I've used the regional voting blocs of the UN to create parties to file all of these candidates. If you also notice, I've combined the Latin American/Caribbean with North America to form an "America's" grouping, while I did something similar with the Western and Eastern Europe regions. All of this is in a hope to help consolidize parties and candidates.

I'd actually suggest 'parties' be based on ideologies espoused by the UN, such as 'interventionism,' 'developmentalism,' or 'convservationism,' depending on their priorities, as examples. All parties being regional tends not to work in this engine.

Interesting suggestion, I just may use that. So where would these parties support draw from? I would assume that the "Developmentals" would be more inclined for the 3rd world like Africa and Asia, while the "Interventionists" would come more from the Western Hemisphere. As for a "Conservationist", I suppose that could play the role of a fairly strong third party type group.

By "Greater Representation," do you mean the proposal of the General Assembly being representative of population, instead of just one ambassador per nation, and possibly even elected? I think I understand the idea behind all the other issues.

By "Greater Representation", you are correct about the idea to reform the general assembly and other plans like the parliamentary assembly idea and electing representatives like the European Union does with it's member states. I have thought of labeling it something like "General Assembly" to make it more clear, but I thought "Greater Representation" is a more umbrella term.

I'd also add Millenium Goals as an issue. The positions could be how much effort should be put into them to archieve them.

It's an interesting possibility of adding the Millennium Development Goals(MDG), but what issue would you consider for deletion if I added the "MDG Adherence" issue?
