“It must be acknowledged that after Coca-Cola, Mandela has become the best known brand internationally. It means that Mandela/Madiba/Tata Mandela, or however South Africans prefer to refer to the great man, one cannot simply talk about the man without also implying the global icon that he has become” Amanda du Preez, Department of Visual Arts, University of Pretoria.
Women’s rights are an essential component of universal human rights.
They reflect the fact that men and women have very different experiences – and the fact that women and girls often face gender-based discrimination that puts them at increased risk of poverty, violence, ill health and a poor education. Amnesty International’s women’s rights work encompasses a range of human rights as they relate to the equity needs of women, working at once to advance new rights and opportunities for all women and to combat the abuses of specific groups of women and girls.

There are few facets of human trafficking that are more desperately evil than the exploitation of the mentally and physically disabled. It has been a subject that we have touched on at COH before. But since that time there have been numerous documented cases of the trafficking of disabled persons. Whether this is a testament to the added scrutiny from governmental and non-governmental agencies in chronicling the phenomena or it is the rate at which these truly vulnerable people are being exploited, is not clear. What is painfully clear is this is one of the most gut-wrenching, cruel and horrific injustices in the world today.

For more than 20 years, Somalia has been beset by conflict and drought, chronic food insecurity and displacement. OCHA began assisting humanitarian efforts in Somalia in 1999. Since then, the organization’s role in coordinating an effective and principled inter-agency humanitarian response has continued to grow as the humanitarian crisis in Somalia remains one of the world’s largest. By providing a coherent approach to the humanitarian response in Somalia, OCHA helps to avoid duplication of aid response and maximizes resources.
