World Refugee Day

20 June is the UN-designated World Refugee Day marking the signing in 1951 of the Convention on Refugees. The condition of refugees and migrants has become a "hot" political issue in many countries, and the policies of many governments have been very inadequate to meet the challenges. The UN-led World Humanitarian Summit held in Istanbul, Turkey 23-24 May, 2016 called for efforts to prevent and resolve conflicts by "courageous leadership, acting early, investing in stability, and ensuring broad participation by affected people and other stakeholders."

To devise the laws for a peaceful and civilized world

1. There are 50

March 3, 1966, 13 world-class Citizens of the World stated:

" In the absence of supernational law, nations are obliged to resort to force to defend their interest. The consequence : war, voluntary or accidental ; and war, since the splitting of the atom and the development of bacteriological weapons becomes the absurd "final solution" the genocide of the human race.

Without world institutions able to assure the fundamental needs common to all, man is helpless. Two thirds of humanity suffer from hunger while immense riches are wasted.

At the same time, scientific and technical progress make it possible to organize a world community of peace and abundance where fundamental liberties would be guaranteed to individuals, peoples and nations.

Why this contradiction ? Because governments ... (read more)

50 years later, this text remains the greatest news. Global citizenship was extended to the whole planet, but much remains to be done towards the political unity necessary to the defense of the cause of Human.

Wolrd Citizens news - 1. Yemen - 2. For a World Parliament

1.

Yemen and World Law: Building from Current Experience by René Wadlow

“Shall we not learn from life its laws, dynamics, balances? Learn to base our needs not on death, destruction, waste, but renewal?” Nancy Newhall

The indiscriminate bombing of cities in Yemen by the Saudi-led coalition highlights the need for renewal of the way that humanitarian law is observed in times of armed conflict especially in three areas:

  • a) the protection of women,
  • b) the prohibition of starvation of civilian populations as a method of warfare,
  • c) the protection of cultural heritage.

Protection for women is enshrined in international humanitarian law which as world law should be binding on both States and armed opposition groups. (to be continued)
