Take Silence Is Agreement

Wikipedia is huge and the time of our editors is limited. At all times, there is a lot of open discussion on many different topics throughout the project. We encourage our editors to be courageous, and it is very likely that at some point you will be affected by the outcome of a decision that you did not know or had no chance of joining. Where a decision is based primarily on silence, it is particularly important to remember that consensus can change. If you force the discipline of “silence say agreement” and apply the above tactics, everyone is led to immediately say what they really think and to discuss it openly instead of marking the problems after the act. 1. The President may propose the adoption of a decision as part of a procedure of silence. Such a proposal must be made at a meeting, specifying the exact date of the expiry of the silence period. If a representative does not object to this meeting, the decision is deemed tacit. Of course, it is not practical to wait forever for confirmation: in the meantime, it is sometimes better to assume that silence implies consensus. You can keep this assumption (hopefully safe) until someone changes the page by reworking it or resetting it. The more visible the statement is and the more unchallenged it remains, the stronger the consensus implication.

4. If the silence is not broken, the President informs the participating States in writing, immediately after the expiry of the period of silence, that the decision in question has been taken. The text of the decision will not be published until the next meeting. Where urgent administrative measures are to be taken on the basis of this decision, the Chair may forward the text of the decision to an appropriate executive structure only for internal use. The maxim is “Who tacet consents”: the maxim of the law is “silence gives its consent.” So if you want to expose what my silence is silent, you have to make sure that I have accepted. 6. Immediately after this meeting, the decision, accompanied by interpretive statements and, if necessary, formal reservations, is issued by the secretariat in an OSCE STANDARD format and attached to the Journal of that meeting. The expiry date of the silence period is considered to be the date of the adoption of the decision.

A procedure of silence or a tacit acceptance procedure[1] (in French: tacit approval procedure; Latin: who agrees to empty, “the one who is silent is led to consent,” “silence implies/means consent”) is a means of formally adopting texts, often, but not exclusively in the international political context. Of course. There is the phrase “silence is consent,” sometimes given as “silence implies approval” or “silence is consent.” “Without objection…¬†We use it in parliamentary sessions. for example: “Without contradiction, so orderly.” Or: “Without objection, it was put on the table… it is an expedited opportunity to reach a unanimous agreement without delaying formal and explicit agreement. There is a legal expression “silence is tolerance” that I have used in the economy. A textbook on diplomacy describes the procedure of silence in this way: it is not surprising that we find ourselves in a discussion between two drafters with a dispute that keeps repeating and repeating their thoughts; Sometimes this happens because they are afraid that when they stop their failure to react, they are misinterpreted as a sign that they agree.
