UN refugee agency outlines strategy to fight xenophobia and racism

“Xenophobia and racism are often at the root of discrimination and intolerance against asylum-seekers and refugees,” said Volker Türk, the director of the international protection division of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).Fear of the ‘other’ typically underlies racist and intolerant sentiments and is compounded by the current global economic and the deteriorating political and social environment in some countries, according to the new guidelines.The agency’s strategy also calls for the monitoring of signs of intolerance, such as racial discrimination and hate crimes. It stresses that the discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance can only be countered by understanding their underlying reasons, including rising immigration and high unemployment.But UNHCR underlined that changing intolerant attitudes is too large a task for one organization to achieve, and called for the participation of governments, UN bodies, non-governmental organization, law enforcement and the media to counter xenophobia and racism.Communities affected by intolerance, as well as potentially hostile groups, must also be involved in all stages of the process to conquer the fear of the ‘other.’“Racism, xenophobia and intolerance are serious threats to the protection of refugees, asylum-seekers and the stateless,” Mr. Türk emphasized. “UNHCR and its partners are working hard to tackle this challenge, but more needs to be done.” 23 December 2009The United Nations refugee agency laid out its strategy today to combat xenophobia and racism, which it says triggers flight and can jeopardize its work to protect asylum-seekers, refugees and the stateless. read more

ISIL may have committed genocide war crimes in Iraq says UN human

The report found widespread abuses committed by ISIL that may amount to war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide, according to a news release issued by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).Compiled by investigators sent to the region last year by the High Commissioner, the report highlights violations, including killings, torture, rape and sexual slavery, forced religious conversions and the conscription of children. ISIL’s attacks on the Yezidi population “pointed to the intent of ISIL to destroy the Yezidi as a group,” the report says, which “strongly suggests” that ISIL may have perpetrated genocide.The report also highlights violations carried out by the Iraqi Security Forces and associated militia groups, including killings, torture and abductions, with some incidents pointing, at the very least, to a failure by the Government to protect persons under its jurisdiction. More than 100 people who witnessed or survived attacks in Iraq between June 2014 and February 2015 helped the investigation team compile its report, which cites brutal and targeted killings of hundreds of Yezidi men and boys in the Ninewa plains in August 2014. Yezidi populations rounded up, with men and boys over the age of 14 separated from the women and girls. The males were led away and shot by ISIL, while the women were abducted as the ‘spoils of war.’ “In some instances,” the report found, “villages were entirely emptied of their Yezidi population.”Yezidi female escapees described being openly sold or handed over as “gifts” to ISIL fighters. Witnesses described rapes of girls as young as six and nine years old and a scene where ISIL members sat laughing as two teenage girls were raped in the next room.Boys between the ages of eight and 15 also described horrific experiences, as they were separated from their mothers, transported to locations in Iraq and Syria and forced to convert to Islam. They were subjected to religious and military training, including how to shoot guns and fire rockets, and were forced to watch beheadings.“This is your initiation into jihad,” one boy was told. “You are an Islamic State boy now.” Christians, Kaka’e, Kurds, Sabea-Mandeans, Shi’a and Turkmen also suffered brutal treatment at ISIL’s hands, the report says, citing the thousands of Christians uprooted from their homes in June last year, when ISIL ordered them to choose between conversion, taxation or displacement, and the 600, mostly Shi’a prisoners who were massacred by ISIL members.An Iraqi Government investigation into that incident and another into an ISIL massacre of over 1,500 cadets from Speicher army base have yet to reveal their conclusions publicly, the report notes, calling for investigations into all crimes detailed in the report, including those alleged to have been committed by Government forces.Numerous sources told the investigation team that Iraqi Security Forces and affiliated militia had also committed serious human rights violations during their counter-offensive operations against ISIL, operating “with total impunity, leaving a trail of death and destruction in their wake.”Retreating Iraqi forces allegedly set fire to an army base in Sinsil, where several dozen Sunni prisoners were held, and in another incident, at least 43 prisoners were allegedly shot dead in the al-Wahda police station in Diyala. Villagers reported being rounded up and taken to al-Bakr airbase at Salah-ad-Din where, the report says, torture is allegedly routine.As one witness put it: “we hoped for the best when the Iraqi army and the ‘volunteers’ liberated the area from ISIL. Instead…they pillaged, burnt and blew up houses, claiming that all villagers are part of ISIL. This is not true; we are just ordinary poor people.”The report urges the Government to become a party to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court and ensure that international crimes defined in that Statute are criminalised under domestic law. It also calls on the Human Rights Council to urge the UN Security Council to address, “in the strongest terms, information that points to genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes,” and to consider referring the situation in Iraq to the International Criminal Court. read more

Duchess of Cambridge gives a nod to Times Up in royal green

first_imgThe Duchess was one of a small number of women at this year’s ceremony not to wear all black, after a letter outlining the Time’s Up dress code was circulated.Neither the Duke, president of Bafta, nor the Duchess appeared to be wearing the Time’s Up lapel pin, which others wore on the red carpet. Amanda Berry, Catherine Duchess of Cambridge and Prince WilliamCredit:James Gourley/BAFTA//REX/Shutterstock Amanda Berry, Catherine Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William She added: “I’m here tonight to stand in solidarity with every woman, every person in the world who has suffered sexual abuse in the workplace.” Gemma Arterton arrived with Eileen Pullen and Gwen Davis, two of the “Dagenham Girls” who walked out of the Ford Motor Company’s Dagenham plant in June 1968 and finally won equal pay. Arterton, who starred in a stage musical version of their story, said: “I thought it was really fitting and I’m really happy and proud that I’m with Gwen and Eileen because they represent a normal person speaking up for what is actually right.” After the Duke and Duchess walked into the hall to polite applause to take their front row seats, Jane Lush, Bafta chairman, opened proceedings with a summary of the “revelation after revelation” leading up to the protest, telling the audience: “This is a moment in history. It should be a watershed.” Andrea Riseborough, who walked the red carpet with activist Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, said those backing the movement hoped to get across “the idea that when all of this stops we all remember that this is an important cause and that we should carry on the conversation”.  Clockwise from top left: Anya Taylor-Joy, Margot Robbie, the Duchess of Cambridge, Gemma Arterton and Joanna Lumley Angelina Jolie wore a black gown to the event Florence Pugh Allison Janney, picking up the prize for best supporting actress for I, Tonya, avoided all things serious, using her speech to clear up a falsehood that she had graduated from Rada, when she in fact attended a two-week summer programme.Other winners included Darkest Hour, which saw Gary Oldman transformed into Winston Churchill with amazing prosthetics, won the award for best make-up and hair. Daniel Kaluuya, the British actor, won the public vote as Bafta’s rising star. The Shape of Water won prizes for original music and production design, Call Me By Your Name won best adapted screenplay, and Phantom Thread best costumes. “As president, I am proud of the leadership Bafta have shown on this; in a year which rocked the industry as many brave people spoke up about bullying, harassment and abuse despite the risk to their professional careers and reputations.”center_img Clockwise from top left: Anya Taylor-Joy, Margot Robbie, the Duchess of Cambridge, Gemma Arterton and Joanna LumleyCredit:Mike Marsland/WireImage/AP/REX On one side, there were the industry’s biggest stars, turning the Bafta red carpet black in their visible support of the Time’s Up movement; 
on the other, the traditionalists insisting the Duchess of Cambridge could not be drawn into a global protest about sexual harassment and gender equality.On Sunday night, the Duchess attempted to walk the diplomatic line, eschewing an unofficial all-black dress code to see the cream of British cinema honoured at the Royal Albert Hall.Her choice of a dark green Jenny Packham dress with a black ribbon appeared to please and offend in equal measure, apparently designed to avoid the scandal of a future queen making an overt statement that could be perceived as political.The movement did not, however, go unnoticed; instead of sending a message through clothing, the Duke acknowledged it in writing.In a foreword in the ceremony’s programme, he mentioned steps taken to protect those in the industry, stating: “Levelling the playing field and ensuring a safe, professional working environment for aspiring actors, filmmakers and craft practitioners – regardless of their background and circumstances – is vital to ensure film remains accessible and exciting for all.

A spokesman for Kensington Palace did not comment on the choice. Catherine Quinn, the Duchess’s private secretary, attending the awards in her official capacity, chose to blend in discreetly in black. Members of the Royal family are supposed to avoid political statements, leaving the Duchess with a stark choice between being accused of overstepping her position or being the only woman wearing colour.Some critics were “disappointed”, arguing that objecting to sexual harassment was not political. From the start, there was little on anyone’s lips except the Time’s Up theme.Campaigners, wearing T-shirts and chanting about sisterhood, lay on the red carpet while stars gushed about the campaign’s aims in interviews. Women at Bafta made no secret of their aims for the evening. Kristin Scott Thomas, nominated for her Clementine Churchill in Darkest Hour, said of Time’s Up: “We need equality now – I think their slogan is absolutely right… Now it’s a question of moving it from conversation to action.” Packing a punch: Florence Pugh on the red carpetCredit:Dave Benett/Getty Images Angelina Jolie wore a black gown to the eventCredit:Mike Marsland/WireImage Salma Hayek, presenting the best actor award, said: “In this very important and historic year for women, I’m here to celebrate men.”She joked the award would go to Frances McDormand, one of the best actress nominees, before announcing the true winner: Gary Oldman.Oldman honoured the late prime minister, who held the line for “honour, integrity and freedom for his nation and the world”. McDormand, who did win best actress, accepted the award in a red, pink and black dress. She joked she had a problem with conformity but added: “I stand in full solidarity with my sisters in black.” Joanna Lumley, the first woman to host the awards solo in more than 20 years, acknowledged the “powerful protest” in her introduction.The first award, for outstanding British film, was presented by Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence to Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Graham Broadbent, its producer, delivered a speech referencing the “tectonic shift” in the industry, and the “meaningful change that can happen quickly”. Sam Rockwell, best supporting actor for the same film, admitted he “stands on the shoulders of strong, intelligent, righteous women who have made my life complete”.Despite the enthusiastic words, gender equality did not appear to bear out in the awards themselves: 39 statues were taken away by men and eight by women.last_img read more

Une langue inconnue découverte en Inde

first_imgUne langue inconnue découverte en IndeInde – Des linguistes américains ont découvert une langue encore inconnue de la science dans une région montagneuse reculée de l’Inde. Les chercheurs menaient alors un projet visant à préserver la diversité du patrimoine linguistique mondial, menacée de disparition.Découverte dans le nord-est de l’Inde, cette langue est parlée par seulement huit cents personnes, et très peu de jeunes. Baptisée Koro, elle appartient à la même famille linguistique que le tibétain ou le birman. Une famille qui regroupe environ quatre cents langues et dialectes. Sur les cent cinquante langues tibéto-birmanes parlées en Inde, pas une seule n’a été identifiée comme proche du koro par les linguistes.À lire aussiLa ”langue géographique”, une mystérieuse maladie qui transforme la surface de la langueComme de très nombreuses langues non écrites, le koro est menacé de disparition. C’est pour tenter de préserver ces dialectes que l’équipe de chercheurs dirigée par Gregory Anderson, directeur de l’Institut des langues vivantes et des langues en danger de l’Oregon, et Gary Harrison, professeur de linguistique au Swarthmore College en Pennsylvanie, ont lancé leur projet dans cette zone isolée de l’État d’Arunachal Pradesh. Cette région est connue pour la diversité de ses langues, les linguistes ont donc choisi d’y mener leur expédition visant à identifier et sauvegarder le patrimoine linguistique mondial. Un projet lancé en 2007, et baptisé The Enduring Voices (les voix qui perdurent).D’après les chercheurs, une langue meurt toutes les deux semaines dans le monde. Ainsi, ce n’est pas moins de la moitié des 6.909 langues aujourd’hui répertoriées qui pourraient disparaître. “D’un point de vue purement quantitatif, le koro n’est qu’une langue de plus qui s’ajoute à cette liste”, déplore Gary Harrison dans un communiqué. Mais “la contribution linguistique du koro est en fait beaucoup plus grande que cela, car cette langue donne une perspective entièrement différente en matière d’histoire, de mythologie, de technologie et de grammaire” souligne-t-il.Le 9 octobre 2010 à 09:19 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Army Stakeholders Learn about New Guidance for Energy Efficiency Resiliency Investments

first_imgWith the objective of DOD’s former Energy Conservation Investment Program recently extended to include projects designed to enhance energy resilience, officials from across the Army responsible for the rechristened Energy Resilience and Conservation Investment Program (ERCIP) met last month to learn about the service’s new planning guidance for prospective projects. The importance of updating the Army’s process for reviewing candidates was heightened due to the service’s directive requiring installations to ensure critical mission capabilities are protected from disruption, said Dominic Ragucci, the Army’s ERCIP program manager. The directive calls for installations to develop the capability to sustain their energy and water requirements for at least 14 days during a service interruption.The directive requires backup power systems which may not save an installation money in the same way a conventional energy efficiency or renewable project would, leading to a revision in the lifecycle cost analysis for projects, Ragucci said. Achieving energy resiliency and security means installations essentially are backing up backup systems, he explained, and trying to satisfy a minimum savings-to-investment ratio can be challenging, reported the Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville.Photo by Stephen Baack Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

Home interior design firm Livspace opens Design Centers

first_imgRepresentational image of home interiors.PixabayLivspace, India’s home interior design and execution platform has opened four flagship Design Centers across metro cities to bring an omnichannel design experience to homeowners. By integrating thousands of online Livspace looks, visualization through virtual reality and an offline, tactile experience, the company expects the Design Centers to solidify its leadership position in the home design space in India.These flagships serve as an addition to the existing network of a total of 11 Design Center and Experience Apartments, spread across Delhi NCR, Bengaluru, and Mumbai. With more such facilities in the pipeline — including flagships, small-format Design Centers, and Experience Apartments — this number is expected to grow to 25, over the next 12-18 months.A sum of Rs 25 crore has been earmarked for this expansion through 2018. True omnichannel experience has always been integral to Livspace since the opening of the pilot Design Center in Bangalore in 2015. Over the last year and a half, the company registered a 35% higher average conversion rate in Bangalore when compared to other cities, solely because of the Design Center. Livspace also gathered feedback from customers, who unanimously said they wanted more looks, a true feeling of being in a home, more technology integration to visualize the space, and extensive material libraries to select from, in order to reduce time-to-purchase.In every Design Center the showcase of rooms — bedrooms, living rooms, modular kitchens, floorings, false ceiling, wall solutions, and, everything in between — is tailored to current design trends and preferences, and average budget range. Commenting on the launch, Anuj Srivastava, CEO and Co-founder, Livspace said: “The Design Centers are inspired by our eighteen-months-long studies in Bangalore and research in the omnichannel buying behaviour exhibited by over 5,000 homeowners buying interior design solutions, which range anywhere from Rs 6 lakh to over 15 lakh.”  Speaking of the virtual reality experience, Ramakant Sharma, CTO and Co-founder, Livspace said: “Virtual reality offers a very immersive visualization experience that’s revolutionary for the larger interior industry. At the Livspace Design Centers, with their dedicated VR zones, you can experience homes in VR, from an ever-expanding library.”last_img read more
