Treaties of Eurth

This page discusses the various treaties signed on Eurth.

Treaty for Cultural and Historical Exchange

The purpose of this treaty was to promote international co-operation in all aspects of cultural research and education. It would globally standardize the cataloging of artifacts and ensure that they are available on an open digital portal, giving access to scholars around the world. Certain guidelines were set concerning non-native scholar access to sites of interests. Universities were encouraged to establish facilities devoted to the study of non-native history and cultures. For institutions who wanted to borrow an artifact from another country, each country would set a defined list of what would be permissible and the loaned would be financially responsible for its transportation and for any damages brought upon it. A panel of scholars would be established to oversee the treaty administration and adjudicate disputes on artifact repatriation. The panel would also handle the publication of a quarterly journal and an annual conference. The treaty was signed in Thale, Morheim.

Antargic Regulation Treaty of Human Activities

The purpose of this treaty is to allow the last untouched continent of Eurth, Antargis, to remain free from harmful Human activities, devoid of Human ideologies, respected for its soil, conserved for its environment and brilliant for its future. All Signatories recognize the geographical integrity of the continent of Antargis and vow to respect it.

Convention on Diplomatic and Consular Relations

This convention's purpose is to further clarify the status of a diplomat within its host country, its diplomatic immunity, the status of Embassies, Consulates along many other variants. This was signed following the fallout of a diplomatic incident that led to the breakdown in Ahranan-Asgeirrian relations.

Agreement on the Continuation of the Treaty of Ferrefaaierhafen

The Agreement on the Continuation of the Treaty of Ferrefaaierhafen, informally known as the Modern Treaty of Ferrefaaierhafen or the ACTF, maintains statutes and rules needed to ensure the safety and prosperity of the Keelpijppassage. It allows most merchant vessels free and protected passage through the passage. Additionally, it protects the integrity and security of nations bordering the passage by establishing rules and regulations towards third-party military vessels, preventing them from entering the Keelpijppassage without explicit agreement from the Executive Chair, Het Huisselant Variota, as well as promoting and enforcing cooperation between the various nations in regards to crime, terrorism and other threats established or seeking to establish themselves on the waters of the Keelpijppassage.

As its name suggests, the ACTF was signed in Ferrefaaierhafen, Variota. As part of its statutes, the treaty is reviewed on a mandatory basis every five years with the next planned review being in 2020.

The Laren Treaty

This is the most ambitious accord dealing with greenhouse-gas-emissions mitigation, adaptation, and finance on combating climate change on Eurth. The convention calls for the following targets:

  • Keeping the world's temperature increase to be no more than 2.0C of those recorded in the 19th Century
  • Keeping greenhouse gas emissions to the same levels that the natural environment can absorb by 2070
  • The removal of most plastic packaging and of such pollution from the world's oceans
  • The conversion of vehicles to electric or alternative propulsion

  • Cutting food waste by 50% by 2040
  • Reverse or halt the trend of ocean acidification by 2030

The Laren Treaty also creates an environmental bank to provide interest-free loans to fund projects designed to meet the aims of the treaty. Technology exchanges between countries to help each other meet the targets set within the accord. As with many other agreements formed by Morheim, there is an academic component of the effort, with research review conferences every two years and a supported Environmental Institute to undertake research projects on behalf of treaty members.
