Human Rights in Security and Development

Recommendations for the G8 Summit, June 2002, including the G8's Action Plan for Africa

Your meeting with other G8 leaders in Kananaskis, Canada comes at a critical time for global security and development. At previous G8 summits in Okinawa and Genoa, you have underscored the central place of human rights in conflict prevention and sustainable development. We urge you to put this important principle into practice as you consider the critical issues on your agenda, including the fight against terrorism; the situation in Afghanistan; poverty reduction and debt relief; the HIV/AIDS crisis; small arms and landmines; and the challenges for peace and development in Africa. A memorandum detailing these concerns and recommendations is attached for your information.
