“Report of the Independent Expert on the Promotion of a Democratic and Equitable International Order”

“Report of the Independent Expert on the Promotion of a Democratic and Equitable International Order”

After 6 years working as UN Independent Expert on the Promotion of a Democratic and Equitable International Order, Mr. Alfred de Zayas concludes with a report outlining 23 principles of international order.

During his mandate, Mr. de Zayas wrote 13 thematic reports and one country report. Back from a mission in Venezuela, the first one by a UN Official since 1996, he will elucidate what is happening on the ground and formulate possible solutions to the economic crisis. Mr. de Zayas will also touch upon the human right to peace, self-determination, military expenditures, tax havens, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

Idriss Jazairy has been the Special Rapporteur on unilateral coercive measures since 2015 and has submitted to the Human Rights Council and General Assembly reports on the adverse impacts of sanctions on the enjoyment of human rights.  Sanctions can be seen as geopolitical crimes and amount to crimes against humanity when they cause massive deaths because of malnutrition and lack of access to medicines.  Idriss Jazairy is a champion of multilateralism and international solidarity.
