File Name: wars and ethnic conflicts make a toll on human rights records .zip
Human rights violations during the Syrian civil war have been numerous and serious, with United Nations reports stating that the war has been "characterized by a complete lack of adherence to the norms of international law "  by the warring parties who have "caused civilians immeasurable suffering".
Deadly and disruptive as it already is, and terribly as it could yet worsen and spread, the coronavirus outbreak could also have political effects that last long after the contagion is contained. Crisis Group identifies seven points of particular concern. The COVID pandemic unquestionably presents an era-defining challenge to public health and the global economy. Its political consequences, both short- and long-term, are less well understood. The global outbreak has the potential to wreak havoc in fragile states, trigger widespread unrest and severely test international crisis management systems.
Our annual special report reviews the past year of data for 10 key conflicts with a look toward trends to watch in the coming months.

In , the world witnessed a drastic increase in violent disorder that assumed many forms: protests from Lebanon to Hong Kong and Iraq to Chile; geopolitical competition in Yemen and Syria; dominant insurgencies in Somalia and Afghanistan; a cartel-insurgency in Mexico; and a diffuse, adaptable militant threat across the Sahel. Governments are also much more likely to use violence against their citizens without international reproach. The rise of authoritarianism — and impunity — has generated significant public reaction in the form of mass protest movements, but it has also increased the level of violence imposed upon civilians and political competition. In this report , ACLED has chosen 10 conflicts that demonstrate how violent political disorder is evolving in places it has festered for decades — such as Afghanistan — as well as in relatively new spaces — such as the United States.
Responding to natural disasters has traditionally been seen as a compassionate response to people in need. While compassion remains at the core of humanitarian action, relief agencies are increasingly conscious of the fact that assistance is rarely neutral and that their actions can have long-term consequences, as evidenced by the tsunamis in Asia, Hurricane Katrina in and the earthquake this year in Haiti. In particular, I argue that incorporating a human rights perspective into natural disaster response is important not only because it affirms the rights and dignity of vulnerable people, but also because it can prevent conflicts in the aftermath of disasters. Nor is it a natural disaster when municipal authorities are able to respond effectively to flooding in their community. For example, the devastating toll on Haiti of 4 hurricanes in was obviously the result of the storms themselves, but certainly exacerbated by the long-term deforestation in that country and inadequate public response. In fact, in that year, deadly hurricanes hit both Haiti and Cuba, but while people died in Haiti, only four fatalities in Cuba were reported.
Deadly and disruptive as it already is, and terribly as it could yet worsen and spread, the coronavirus outbreak could also have political effects that last long after the contagion is contained. Crisis Group identifies seven points of particular concern. The COVID pandemic unquestionably presents an era-defining challenge to public health and the global economy. Its political consequences, both short- and long-term, are less well understood. The global outbreak has the potential to wreak havoc in fragile states, trigger widespread unrest and severely test international crisis management systems. Its implications are especially serious for those caught in the midst of conflict if, as seems likely, the disease disrupts humanitarian aid flows, limits peace operations and postpones or distracts conflict parties from nascent as well as ongoing efforts at diplomacy.
Since civil war broke out in South Sudan in December , over 50, people have been killed—possibly as many as ,, according to a recent estimate —and nearly four million people have been internally displaced or fled to neighboring countries. After almost five years of civil war in South Sudan, Kiir and Machar participated in negotiations mediated by Uganda and Sudan in June Later that month, Kiir and Machar signed the Khartoum Declaration of Agreement that included a cease-fire and a pledge to negotiate a power-sharing agreement to end the war. Despite sporadic violations over the ensuing weeks, Kiir and Machar signed a final cease-fire and power-sharing agreement in August The agreement , called the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan, included a new power-sharing structure and reinstated Machar as vice president. In late October , Machar returned to South Sudan for a nationwide peace celebration to mark the end of the civil war. However, reports of continued attacks and violations, coupled with the collapse of multiple previous peace deals, highlight concerns that the fragile peace may not hold.

Согласно регистру, кто-то открывал ее компьютер, пока ее не было в комнате.
Сьюзан опасливо огляделась. Если до этого Хейл не знал, что они идут, то теперь отлично это понял. Стратмор нажал несколько кнопок и, прочитав полученное сообщение, тихо застонал. Из Испании опять пришли плохие новости - не от Дэвида Беккера, а от других, которых он послал в Севилью. В трех тысячах миль от Вашингтона мини-автобус мобильного наблюдения мчался по пустым улицам Севильи.
Наконец он заговорил - спокойно, тихо и даже печально: - Нет, Грег, извини. Я не могу тебя отпустить. Хейл даже замер от неожиданности. - Что. - Я вызываю агентов безопасности.
- Сэр, мне кажется… что с ТРАНСТЕКСТОМ какая-то проблема. Стратмор закрыл дверцу холодильника и без тени волнения взглянул на Чатрукьяна. - Ты имеешь в виду работающий монитор. Чатрукьян растерялся. - Так вы обратили внимание. - Конечно.
Сьюзан, не слушая его, повернулась к Соши. - Сколько там этих сироток? - спросила. Соши развела руками.
Очевидно, волнение отняло у него все силы. Его лицо залила мертвенная бледность. Беккер предпринял последнюю попытку: - Мистер Клушар, я хотел бы получить показания этого немца и его спутницы.
В шифровалке. Спускаясь по лестнице, она пыталась представить себе, какие еще неприятности могли ее ожидать. Ей предстояло узнать это совсем. ГЛАВА 2 На высоте тридцать тысяч футов, над застывшим внизу океаном, Дэвид Беккер грустно смотрел в крохотный овальный иллюминатор самолета Лирджет-60. Ему сказали, что бортовой телефон вышел из строя, поэтому позвонить Сьюзан не удастся.
