Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
Human rights protections and sustainable development are pivotal considerations for successful future planning and longevity of decision making in whichever ecosystem of interests or industry you operate in. The role of private and public actors in shaping this discourse is clear, and mechanisms for ensuring accountability and enforcement
of these principles is critical in our increasingly interdependent world
It's all part of making a better world.
With human rights safeguarded in the interests of sustainable development we may begin to see a more prosperous world with a greater equality of opportunity and growth not just in the short term but in the longer term too. Economic success will no longer be reliant on the exploitation of other nation states and economic development will establish more robust and reliant ecosystems of support.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by those who are currently reliant on industry and innovation to drive economic growth in their home country but who are unjustly placed in a position where choosing economic prosperity comes at the cost of basic human rights. Those from developing countries with limited access to justice and legal protections particularly from overseas investment and activities.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Greater access to justice mechanisms for victims of human rights abuse
Law reform for the protection of basic human rights in public and private decision making
Greater public awareness of legal rights and protections available to all pockets of society
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
1). Implementation of new laws on furthering human rights.
2). International monitoring mechanisms for human rights and corruption will demonstrate greater compliance with international standards.
3). Improved public education and awareness of basic legal rights and protections
4). Governance and decision making frameworks of public and private bodies will embed human rights and sustainable development principles
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
