PRAXIS - Resources For Social and Economic Development



International Humanitarian Crises (This section taken from http://garnet.acns.fsu.edu/~sms6202/irlinks.html)

  • Relief Web (A UN-sponsored site that keeps track of major humanitarian and natural disasters around the globe;
  • International Committee of the Red Cross
  • United Nations Department of Humanitarian Affairs
  • Doctors Without Borders (Medicins Sans Frontieres)
  • ReliefNet (A site that has links to organizations that participate or track humanitarian relief efforts)
  • The War Crimes Tribunals for both Yugoslavia and Rwanda are now on line.
  • International Criminal Court -- ICC (The actual court itself has not yet been established. The treaty creating the ICC has been signed, but implementation of the treaty awaits ratification by the signatory nations. No treaty goes into effect until the governments involved approve of the treaty through their individual constitutional processes. This site is an NGO site that explains the court and tracks the ratification processes in the signatory nations.)
  • International Crisis Group (This is a private NGO site that tracks the political, military, and humanitarian aspects of various international crises.)

International Organizations,

  • United Nations system
  • UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)
  • Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)
  • International Court of Justice (ICJ)
  • International Labor Organization (ILO)
  • UN Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)
  • World Health Organization (WHO)
  • World International Property Organization WIPO (that protects copyrights for patents, books, films, and software)
  • World Food Program (WFP)

  • International Monetary Fund (IMF)
  • The International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (World Bank)
  • World Trade Organization (WTO)
  • Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD, the wealthy countries' club)
  • Group of Eight: University of Toronto Group of 8 Information Page, the richest nations' economic leadership forum)
  • Group of 77 (G-77, a meeting group of developing nations that contains more than 77 nations)
  • World Economic Forum (governmental leaders, business leaders, and other national and international leaders from numerous professions gather together yearly to discuss the global economy from around the world. This is less an international organization and more of a meeting of elites from around the world.)

Regional organizations also provide information on their activities:

  • Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum (APEC)
  • Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)
  • European Union (EU)
  • North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)
  • Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE)
  • Organization of African Unity (OAU)

    Peace and survival of life on Earth as we know it are threatened by human activities that lack a commitment to humanitarian values.  Destruction of nature and natural resources results from ignorance, greed, and a lack of respect for the Earth's living things... .  It is not difficult to forgive destruction in the past, which resulted from ignorance.  Today, however, we have access to more information, and it is essential that we re-examine ethically what we have inherited, what we are responsible for, and what we will pass on to coming generations.  Clearly this is a pivotal generation... .  Our marvels of science and technology are matched if not outweighed by many current tragedies, including human starvation in some parts of the world, and extinction of other life forms... .  We have the capability and responsibility.  We must act before it is too late.  Tenzin Gyatso the fourteenth Dalai Lama.
