Condemning government support for undemocratic regimes
Exposing government support for regimes that support international terrorism
States that are known to support international terrorism should not be forgiven until all support of any kind is withdrawn. Such countries should be held directly responsible for all attacks carried out by terrorists whom they help or harbour. In response to a terrorist attack, a variety of measures including economic embargoes and the attacking of terrorist bases should be considered. A normalization of relations should only proceed when terrorist-supporting governments cease all such activities, or better still, when the government changes leadership.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
