International Cooperation, Multilateralism and International Law

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and all other human rights instruments are the cornerstone documents of Pax Christi International’s work in the field of human rights. These human rights instruments and their covenants are based on respect for human dignity and non-discrimination.

One aim of Pax Christi International is to make the human rights treaties universally binding – and at the same time strengthen the effective implementation of them.

A united humanity will be able to confront the many troubling problems of the present: from the menace of terrorism to the humiliating poverty in which millions of human beings live; from the proliferation of weapons to the pandemics and the environmental destruction which threatens the future of our planet.
