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.
