BİRLEŞMİŞ MILLETLER’E STK/NGO STATÜSÜYLE NASIL ÜYE OLUNUR?

Birleşmiş Milletler bünyesinde, gerek Amerika gerekse Türkiye kapsamında etkin ve dinamik, Türkiye Cumhuriyeti’nin temel kuruluş prensipleri doğrultusunda ve dünya çapında görünebilir ve de var olabilmenin yolu, BM’den, özellikle UN–DGC’ye ve/veya ECOSOC (UN-Economic Social Council); –en azından bu ikisinden birine üye- olmaktan geçer.

Birleşmiş Milletler, STK’lar ile üniversite/yüksek egitim kurumlarını, amaçları doğrultusunda programlarını gerçekleştirme de, özellikle diğer üye STK’lar başta olmak üzere BM bünyesinde gerek Daimi Temsilcilikler ile gerekse BM birimleri ve akademik kuruluşlar ve özel sektör ile işbirliğine teşvik eder

Introduction & Definition: J.U.C. MEDIA, RESEARCH AND WRITING, and potential SCHOLARSHIP

“Even though my hopes for his physical existence, intellect, and potential faded out, I am holding on to the hope he gave me at the age of 7.
I am still inspired by him, through his words, both written in paper and in my mind, that from this point on, I will NOT only focus on him, and/or on keeping my hope and love alive for my older son and grand-children, but also on expanding that hope and love from the borders of my immediate family to underprivileged children, kids and youth, to a global family.

THE U.S. PEOPLE ARE CONFLICTED ABOUT WHAT HATE SPEECH IS.

75th COMMEMORATIVE ANNIVERSARY OF THE LIBERATION OF AUSCHWITZ

Sevgin OKTAY, Representative of The Light Millennium to the United Nations Department of Global Communications
We know that Hate speech is speech that attacks a person or a group on the basis of attributes such as race, religion, ethnic origin, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity.  The U.S. Supreme Court on the other hand has repeatedly ruled that hate speech is legally protected free speech under the First Amendment and therefore, Hate speech in the United States is not regulated, “in contrast to that of most other liberal democracies,” as noted by the Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres.

Cumhuriyet idaresinin ilk yılları, 1923’te nüfus sayımında kadınlarında sayılması, 1924 seçme ve seçilme hakları reddedilmişti. Atatürk çok istese de bu yıllarda, Türkiye Büyük Millet Meclisi’nin kabul etmediği kadın haklarının zamanlamasının, o ilk yıllar için çok da uygun olmadığını gördü.
2 yılı daha bekliyecekti.”
