Terrorism Prevention

Terrorism Prevention | Aboriginal Studies | Scoop.it
United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime Web Site
Krystyn Bonney's insight:

Terrorism is a major threat to international peace and security and many human lives are lost due to this devastating act. Terrorism undermines the core values of the UN. The Terrorism Prevention Branch of the United Nations office on Drugs and crime (UNODC) has a specific role to play in these international efforts. They assist other member states in providing legal counter-terrorism technical assistance. The branch works to assist the member states upon request ratification, legislative incorporation and implementation of the universal legal framework against terrorism.

NRW National Reconciliation Week

NRW National Reconciliation Week | Aboriginal Studies | Scoop.it
Lily's insight:
Reconciliation Australia's program National Reconciliation Week (NRW) focuses on sharing and learning about Australia's shared history, achievements and culture.
It's held once a year on May 27th to the 3rd of June. These dates refer to two significant achievements in Reconciliation; the 1967 referendum, where indigenous and Torres Strait islanders were recognised in the national census. And the 1992 decision that indigenous and Torres Strait islanders have a connection to land and helps them claim native title.
This year's NRW event encourages people to participate in reconciliation events by hosting or attending one. These events involve ceremonies, discussions, flag raising, bbq, dances, art exhibitions, film screenings, etc. The Reconciliation Australia website has many recourses for this event such as posters, and documents/fact sheets in relation to significant achievements in reconciliation.

Reconciliation Australia | Schools

Reconciliation Australia | Schools | Aboriginal Studies | Scoop.it
Joshua Daw's insight:

Nurragunnawali: Recognition in Schools is a program that will be launched sometime this year within schools countrywide.

Reconciliation Australia.org.au is aware of the importance to plant the seed of positivity into the minds of school children early on.

 

Such strategies to do so include:

-Curriculum resources linked to the Australian Curriculum

-Resources for teachers to tap into

-An award program used as positive reinforcement for students that participate enthusiastically in reconciliation.

 

The hoped end results will be to instil a positive perspective into the younger generations, setting up our future society to be one that is more diverse and understanding.

Historical timeline.

 

 

This timeline focuses on significant historical events which affected Aboriginal people within Western Australia. Though brief, it offers a clear understanding of these events and their dates. The lack of a reference list below the timeline however makes me doubt its full validity.

United Nations Global Issues

United Nations Global Issues | Aboriginal Studies | Scoop.it
This is the site for Global Issues at the United Nations. Here you will find information and links.
Samuel Schultz's insight:

The United Nations have been focusing on "Persons with Disabilities" for at least 3 years on their agenda. The facts are as followed. Among the worlds poorest people, 20 percent have some kind of disability. Unfortunately people with disabilities are more likely to be victims of violence and rape. They are less likely to obtain police intervention, legal protection and preventative care. 30 percent of street youth have some kind of disability.

In developing countries a shocking 90 percent of children with disabilities do not attend school.Some 10 percent of the worlds population, approximately 650 million live with a disability. This is saying that the percentage of the population of the disabled peoples in the world is increasing dramatically and this is not a good sign. This also means that there will be more disabled people not getting the help they need, more disabled children not getting the education they need and shockingly more rapes and violence.

The United Nations have taken a stand and made rules to aid this issue. They have stated "Persons with disabilities have the right to respect their human identity" as we'll as "The same fundamental rights as their fellow peers (Non- disabled), the same civil and political rights as other human beings. Lastly they stated that measures are designed to enable them to become a self- reliant as possible.
