The unheard truth : poverty and human rights by Irene Khan( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite economic growth in almost every corner of the world over the last decade, billions of people still live in poverty. Amnesty International Secretary General Irene Khan claims that economic analyses do not provide a full picture and economic solutions alone cannot end the problems of poverty. In an argument enriched with her personal experiences and case studies from around the world, Khan sees poverty as the world's worst human rights crisis because it traps people in a vicious cycle of deprivation, insecurity, exclusion, and voicelessness. She argues that the foremost challenge is the empowerment of poor people, and makes a passionate and urgent plea for action to uphold human rights in the fight to end poverty."--Jacket
Die unerhörte Wahrheit : Armut und Menschenrechte by Irene Khan( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in German and French and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rockstars, Politiker, NGOs, Entwicklungshilfeorganisationen: Alle wollen die Armut bekämpfen, und trotzdem leben heutzutage immer noch eine Milliarde Menschen von weniger als einem Dollar am Tag! Damit Armut keine immerwährende globale Epidemie bleibt, fordert die Generalsekretärin von Amnesty International, Irene Khan, eine radikale, neue Sicht der Dinge. Anhand gezielt ausgesuchter Fallbeispiele, belegt mit Analysen und unterfüttert mit persönlichen Erfahrungen, plädiert sie leidenschaftlich dafür, Armut endlich nicht mehr als rein ökonomisches Problem zu sehen, dem man nur mittels Spenden, neuen Technologien oder Investitionen begegnen kann, sondern als eine eindeutige Verletzung der Menschenrechte. Nur wenn wir den Armen die einfachsten Grundrechte zugestehen, ihnen die Möglichkeit geben, selbst über ihr Leben zu bestimmen, dann werden wir auch die Armut besiegen und allen Menschen Freiheit und Würde geben können

This house believes that torture is only acceptable under legal supervision( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A majority of the audience at the last Doha Debate of the third series held on May 28th agreed that the use of torture is never acceptable, even under legal supervision. Khawar Qureshi QC, a British barrister, and Colonel Bob Stewart, the first British commander under UN command in Bosnia, argued for the motion. They called torture a 'last resort' and told the audience that in very specific circumstances when terrorist acts could be prevented and many lives saved, torture should be allowed under the supervision of a judge. The head of Amnesty International, Irene Khan, and Freshta Raper, a victim of torture in Iraq in the 1980s, argued passionately against the motion. They said that there can never be any circumstances under which torture is acceptable and gathering intelligence through torture is unreliable and open to abuse
