Position Paper: Principles for a constructive and humane Canadian policy in the Middle East

pp37.pngThe following document outlines a high-level strategy for Canada in the Middle East for the coming months.  Underlying this strategy is the conviction that Canada should apply basic principles of decency and humanity in its interactions with other countries.  These principles include: 1) support for international law; 2) an equal legal standard for all; 3) a belief that violence doesn’t lead to solutions; 4) humanitarian concern; 5) support for representative governance; and 6) a sense of urgency in responding to crises.  There is also the underlying assumption in this document that Canada is a wealthy and privileged nation, and that Canada has a responsibility to contribute constructively (and financially) to humanitarian, political and diplomatic crises in the Middle East.

    Worldwide law is passed by some group of countries like the UN or NATO. It’s a dumb thing that makes a law in ALL nations in that association’s ward. It lessens all nations to basically a similar level according to http://www.essayhelpdeal.co.uk , which means you have to a lesser extent a decision of what environment you need to live in.
