20 July 2017

 

To United Nations Security Council Ambassadors,

 

Re: Worsening crisis in Yemen and need for United Nations Security Council Action

 

Following the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) briefing on 12 July, where senior UN officials warned of a dramatic worsening of the crisis in Yemen, we felt compelled to write to you as the NGO Task Force on the Code of Conduct regarding Security Council action against genocide, crimes against humanity or war crimes.

 

"What would US cuts to the UN look like?"

In President Donald Trump’s most recent budget proposal, there were explicit calls to reduce United States’ funding to several United Nations organizations. While the US is the largest funder of the general UN system, not every affiliated organization benefits from US monetary support to the same extent. In an article recently published by the Brookings Institute, authors John McArthur and Krista Rasmussen discuss the implications for individual UN organizations as well as for the US should the latter significantly reduce its support in the upcoming fiscal year.

WFM-IGP Annual Report 2014-2015

“The historic advancements in the post-cold war, post-apartheid period, in that brief decade of leadership best exemplified by world leaders like Nelson Mandela – these historic advances in democracy, justice, human rights, & the rule of law are under severe attack.”
 – William R. Pace, Executive Director

In 2014 and 2015, the momentum of the human rights movement – to which the World Federalist Movement - Institute for Global Policy (WFM-IGP) has been integral – came under attack, along with the human rights institutions that correspond with the movement and its advocates.

To reflect the fight against these forces, the theme of WFM-IGP’s 2014/15 Annual Report is “Building Capacities for Protection, Prevention and Peace,” and emphasizes the organization’s refusal to look backwards. WFM-IGP views civil society – the human rights activists, local and regional organization leaders, academics, legal practitioners, journalists and more, and of which our membership and partners are comprised – as an engine for protection, prevention and peace in the context of the world’s gravest crimes.
