In conjunction with the International Day of Remembrance of and Tribute to the Victims of Terrorism, the International Alliance for Peace and Development condemns all acts of terrorism that target innocent victims. The Terrorism is fundamentally a denial of human rights and the destruction of human rights and addressing the rights of victims of terrorism is one of the main paths to countering the threat of cross-border terrorism
Today the world marked the second anniversary of the victims of terrorism. The United Nations General Assembly adopted this day in a resolution to honor and support the victims and survivors of terrorism and to promote and protect their full enjoyment of their human rights and fundamental freedoms. The celebration focuses on the ability of victims and their families to withstand and adapt to society and the efforts that have helped them heal, recover and remain strong and united against terrorism.
According to the Global Terrorism Index, the number of victims of terrorism has decreased significantly, the impact of terrorism has declined in 94 countries, and increased in 46 countries, but the international Alliance believes that terrorism in all its forms remains a global challenge for the serious harm done to persons.
The International Alliance for Peace and Development seeks to face the phenomenon of terrorism and violence. The International Alliance undertakes various activities inside and outside Geneva aimed at countering the phenomenon of terrorism, violence and extremism. So the Alliance did numbers of workshops in Poland, Greece and Switzerland on UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy and also organizes peaceful rallies on peace, non-violence and counter-terrorism in front of the UN headquarters in Geneva, and IAPD has launched campaigns against terrorism, violence and extremism.
The international Alliance calls for the need to address the situation that help spread terrorism, IAPD also calls on the United Nations to impose sanctions on states that sponsor terrorism. IAPD also urges the United Nations to take responsibility for capacity-building, rehabilitation and protection of the rights of victims of terrorism crimes in order to establish criminal justice, security and peace among the world’s communities. The need from States, the United Nations and the international community to treat the rights of victims of terrorism as a top priority
