Pax Christi International joint oral statement on recent Declaration of UN General Assembly on the Right to Peace
Pax Christi International has joint an oral statement on the recent Declaration of the UN General Assembly on the Right to Peace with APG23 and other 20 co-signing NGOs.The statement was delivered Friday during the 34th session of the Human Rights Council that is taking place these weeks in Geneva.
This Declaration on the Right to Peace is a further step in the right direction, but it is not the end. We cannot stop here. It is now necessary to take appropriate measures to implement the right to peace, first of all by promoting, at all levels, a culture of peace and nonviolence. States should support the development of infrastructures for peace in order to put this in practice and realize the right to peace.
