Human Rights Commission
The Human Rights Commission issues for AISMUN 2019 are:
Issue #1: The issue of securing rights for the disabled in LEDCs and preventing violence against them.
Disabled people are often deprived of their right to live independently and other rights in general. People who are disabled are also highly discriminated against and have a harder time finding employment. They are also at a greater risk of being taken advantage of because their rights are not as protecting as those of abled people. All issues that disabled people face are multiplied within less economically developed countries meaning it is an even more pressing issue there.
Issue #2:The issue of discrimination and violence against Albino people within Africa.
Within twenty three african countries a report made in 2014 lists 129 recent killings and 181 other attacks against albinistic people. This an extreme violation of human rights because the people are being treated like vermin. In some cases body parts of the albinistic people are even sold. The Human rights commission should help these people who are being killed and having their rights violated.
Issue #3: The issue of the fundamental human rights of indigenous people
When a land is conquered the people who were native to the area are often thrown to the side and mistreated afterwords. For the United States and Canada the people were thrown to the side and mistreated and such practices continue into the modern day and age. Despite the many differences between indigenous people they all share a past of injustice. Them being mistreated the way they are in the 21st century is a massive issue in terms of human rights and as such should be addressed accordingly.
