The unheard truth : poverty and human rights by Irene Khan( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 946 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
The media and the Rwanda genocide by Allan Thompson( Book )
7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 283 libraries worldwide
The news media played a crucial role in the 1994 Rwanda genocide: local media fueled the killings, while the international media either ignored or seriously misconstrued what was happening. This is the first book to explore both sides of that media equation. The book examines how local radio and print media were used as a tool of hate, encouraging neighbours to turn against each other. It also presents a critique of international media coverage of the cataclysmic events in Rwanda. Bringing together local reporters and commentators from Rwanda, high-profile Western journalists, and leading medi

This report looks at the progress that has been achieved in developing the conflict prevention capacity of the United Nations. It also provides recommendations on how efforts of the United Nations system in this field could be further enhanced, with the cooperation and active involvement of Member States, who ultimately have primary responsibility for conflict prevention. It stresses that conflict prevention lies at the heart of the mandate of the United Nations in the maintenance of international peace and security, and that a general consensus is emerging among member states that comprehensive and coherent conflict prevention strategies offer the greatest potential for promoting lasting peace and creating an enabling environment for sustainable development.--Publisher's description

Pandemic : facing AIDS by Kofi A Annan( Book )
5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 178 libraries worldwide
"Pandemic: Facing AIDS presents images of the forty-two million women, children, and men around the world who live with the disease that defines this century. It presents the scope of the pandemic, the different cultural and national responses to it, and it puts a human face on the disease of a severity not seen since the Bubonic Plague in the fourteenth century. An overview of the global strategy to address the problem that has killed twenty-five million people worldwide, it includes images of AIDS that have themselves been part of the defining face of the disease. In 2002 alone, over five million people were newly infected, and at the dawn of a new millennium, AIDS threatens political and economic stability globally, hindering development and causing terrible human suffering. But there have been victories, and more are possible. Countries like Uganda have encouraged education and outreach which have markedly dropped the rate of infection and improved life for those already infected. Thailand has sponsored information and care for women and children that has helped stem the tide. Brazil has advocated strongly for affordable pharmaceutical and health treatment for its citizens. With education and resources, the world's AIDS crisis is solvable - if the will to do so is there."--BOOK JACKET

State of the world, 2002 : a Worldwatch Institute report on progress toward a sustainable society by Christopher Flavin( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 163 libraries worldwide
In preparation for the World Summit on Sustainable Development in September 2002 in Johannesburg, South Africa, [this book] evaluates what has been achieved since the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio. Ten years ago, the leaders of the world produced a plan to begin creating a sustainable global economy, one that meets human needs while protecting and restoring the natural environment. How much progress has the world made toward that goal? With [the book] as your guide, you will learn about the problems facing the delegates in Johannesburg as they try to answer this question -from today's severe inequalities of wealth and income (1.2 billion people live on 1 [dollar] a day or less) to environmental threats such as climate change, growing numbers of tourists in fragile areas, and the proliferation of toxic chemicals. The authors also shed light on the possibilities for change and how existing technologies and resources can help solve many of our most pressing problems. Using renewables like wind power, the energy economy can be converted from oil to hydrogen. Poor farmers can grow more food by taking advantage of "free" biological services, like nitrogen-fixing plants and beneficial insects. And women can have fewer children when they have a chance to get an education and to act on their own decisions on when to have children. [The book] spells out priorities for the Johannesburg Summit in seven key areas: agriculture, energy policy and climate change, chemicals, international tourism, population growth, resource-based conflicts, and global governance. Decisions made today can make all the difference in our efforts to build a more stable and secure world in the future.-- From back cover

La Charte des Nations Unies : commentaire, article par article by Nazioni Unite( Book )
6 editions published in 2005 in French and held by 116 libraries worldwide
"Signée le 26 juin 1945, entrée en vigueur le 24 octobre suivant, la Charte des Nations Unies a 60 ans. Si les résultats sont, à l'évidence, en deçà des espérances, l'action des États, la firme propre des institutions, la souplesse du texte, ont permis aux Nations Unies de s'adapter aux exigences changeantes des relations internationales en dépit des mutations considérables qui ont marqué, ces 60 dernières années: guerre froide, décolonisation, recherche d'un développement durable, menaces nucléaire et du terrorisme ... Cette remarquable faculté d'adaptation, le miracle permanent que constitue l'existence même de l'Organisation, l'influence qu'elle continue d'exercer en dépit des tentations de l'unilatéralisme, justifient une étude d'ensemble de la Charte, dans une perspective juridique, à la lumière de la pratique. Sous la direction de Jean-Pierre Cot et Alain Pellet, 129 juristes - parmi lesquels 3 anciens Présidents, le Vice-Président et 2 juges à la Cour internationale de Justice, plusieurs ministres ou anciens ministres, de nombreux fonctionnaires internationaux ou diplomates familiers des Nations Unies, des membres de la Commission du Droit international et une pléiade d'universitaires et de chercheurs - venant de 24 pays, mais tous francophones et se réclamant de la tradition juridique latine, ont uni leurs efforts pour faire le point des connaissances actuelles sur les Nations Unies. Comme les deux éditions précédentes, celle-ci se présente sous la forme d'un commentaire article par article, soigneusement mis à jour; mais elle a été enrichie de contributions abordant des sujets transversaux qui ne trouvent pas place dans le commentaire d'une disposition déterminée."--Page 4 of cover
