DU Action at the UN

CADU has agreed to publicise and circulate a report written by Karen Parker, which analyses DU action at the UN. In summarising this report Karen writes: "I will include all DU groups NGO statements (written and oral), my Memorandum, the UN resolutions and report and an update of the current status. The analysis will include discussion of the "whys" behind the UN action and my legal position that DU is already illegal by operation of existing law. I will include some discussion of why lobbying for a specific treaty banning DU could be counterproductive as well as costly. While I intend to have the report done by February -- in time for the next session of the Commission on Human Rights -- the next big push on the issue will be the Summer session of the Sub-Commission. In the meantime if there are any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.
