Model Resolutions

Model Resolutions

Related to model policies, these are appropriate to councils, political parties, unions, etc.

Campaigners write a resolution and persuade an ally to present it for adoption.

  • Take advice from allies within the targetted organisation on the best way to draft and present your resolution.
  • In local authorities, friendly officers may help with background information and advice, both technical and political.
  • Be sensitive to local political circumstances.
  • Commitments requiring immediate expenditure by the ruling party will meet resistance. It is sometimes better to make progress in stages - getting a policy adopted in principle before working to translate it into expenditure and activity.
  • Research the background extremely thoroughly.
