About the publisher:
Citizen International has been conceived as a global initiative to foster awareness, activism and advocacy on issues that are central to the stability and wellbeing of humanity at the beginning of the 21st century. As an independent, non-partisan, non-government and non-profit network, Citizen International is concerned that in the aftermath of 9/11 and the so-called ‘war on terror’, which has become a war without end, the world is today more unstable, divided and volatile.
Citizen International believes that irrespective of race and religion, the interest of humanity are Unser-mined by a reversion to military might to resolves issues and that the international order must rest on the rule of law, based on the United Nations Charter and principles of international law. Doctrines of pre-emption, theories of ‘clash of civilizations’ and unilateralism through use of force demand that all those committed to a just and peaceful world join hands to resist and reject this dangerous agenda.
Citizen International feels that since universal values like democracy, rule of law and human rights are indivisible, it is imperative that Muslim who are the main victims of the ‘war of terror’ also concurrently promote and protect these norms in their own countries so that their citizen are able to live without fear in an environment of freedom and dignity.
Citizen International proposes to pursue these goals through campaigns of:
- awareness, sharing its perspectives and others that are similar through the internet, print and conferences;
- activism, by coalition-building with like-minded groups, individuals and institutions particularly the anti-globalization and anti-war movements;
- Advocacy, with parliaments, governments, opinion leaders, multilateral institutions like the UN, OIC and EU and non-governmental or organizations.
Citizen International is convinced that the rule of law is superior to the rule by man, repression invariably results in resistance and military might be able to prevail over the popular will. An aware and active public opinion, therefore, is the best safeguard against the diktat of a powerful few.
