Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1001 to 1500
ANNEX - after Idea 1200 (Continued)I would recommend lifting of the UN debates from reforms leading to impotency to debates at obtaining a proper government of our highly delicate perishable planet.
The most concrete, immediate help by the World Federalists would be to support the proposals of the European Parliament of 8 February 1994, especially "that consideration be given to the possibility of setting up a Parliamentary Consultative Assembly within the UN" (text follows).
I wish you a very successful, world assisting Montreux conference and assure you of my continued, enthusiastic, unreserved support.
Yours in peace and world citizenship,
Former UN Assistant Secretary General
One-dollar-a-year Chancellor of
the UN University for Peace
Resolution of 8 February 1994 of the European Parliament
on the Role of the Union within the United Nations
and the problems of reforming the UN
International organization and conferences
United Nations and specialized agencies
Adopted by Parliament on 8 February, though believing that the duties of the UN should remain the prevention of war and aggression, the promotion of collective security and the peaceful settlement of disputes, Parliament emphasized the need for rapid and efficient reform of the organization, updating its aims and improving its working. Parliament also considered the Union's involvement in the work of the Untied Nations and its specialized agencies inadequate.
It saw a vital need to define precisely and unambiguously the principles on which decisions on UN intervention were based, place peace-keeping units under the sole responsibility of the UN Secretary-General, change the rules governing the distribution of humanitarian aid, recognize the universal validity of the right to intervene on humanitarian grounds and provide the UN with the human, financial and technical resources needed to implement its decisions effectively.
Parliament also suggested that the General Assembly could be more closely associated with the decisions of the Security Council, which should be made to reflect more accurately the realities of the modern world. It argued that once all the necessary institutional steps had been taken for the establishment of a common foreign and security policy, consideration should be given to granting the Union the status of full member of the General Assembly and a permanent seat on the Security Council.
Parliament also called for the setting-up, under the auspices of the UN, of an International Environment Court and a World Environment Agency, of which the European Environment Agency would be the regional branch. It also wanted indigenous peoples to be better represented at the UN and consideration to be given to the possibility of setting up a Parliamentary Consultative Assembly within the UN.*
*January 1998: these very important recommendations from the peoples' representatives of 16 European countries at the European Parliament have received little, if any attention. They should be placed officially on the agenda of UN reform.
Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,
Volume II Chapter 5 - Of Love
I was born with a deep spirituality. When I was a child I looked at the stars, at the moon, at nature and at the whole Creation as miracles. I also considered human life to be a miracle. We spoke German in Alsace-Lorraine at the time and I used to say: "Das Leben ist göttlich, life is divine." I used this word because it was the biggest adjective I could find.
