Top UN officials urge global movement of minds to realise universal values

“The Academic Impact aims to generate a global movement of minds to promote a new culture of intellectual social responsibility,” the Secretary-General told the conference, held on 1 and 2 November in advance of the formal launch of the initiative, which will take place at UNHQ in New York on 18-19 November. In institutional terms, Academic Impact will serve as a clearing house to match academic innovation with particular areas of the UN’s work, including neglected areas of research, countries in need of specific help, research that will help deliver concrete change on the ground, and the best ideas to meet the Millennium Development Goals by 2015. “It is animated by a commitment to certain bedrock principles, among them, freedom of inquiry, opinion and speech; education opportunity for all; global citizenship; sustainability; and dialogue,” the Secretary-General added. Mr. Akasaka, UN Under-Secretary General for Communications and Public Information, spoke of the integrity and universality of the initiative. “It is our conviction that principles inherent in the UN Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights are universal values that education can promote and help to fulfil,” he said. “There can be no alliance more formidable than that between scholarship and social responsibility.” Mr. Akasaka added that the spirit and intent of the UN’s Academic Impact initiative was “to unleash minds and their potential by asserting the right to enquire; the right to challenge every dogma, even if it happens to be the only dogma prevalent at the moment; to allow the liberty to express views and opinions, and to acknowledge the responsibility to substantiate them.” He said the conference, organized by China’s Ministry of Education, and attended by some 200 representatives from more than 80 universities and research institutes had helped to define the core principles of the initiative in advance of its New York launch. 2 November 2010Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and senior UN communications chief Kiyo Akasaka have urged academics and scholars to spearhead a movement to further freedom of expression and educational opportunity for all, at a conference on the UN’s Academic Impact initiative in Shanghai. read more

According to an UNAMID news release, a Mission convoy of military, police and civilian personnel came under a combination of automatic and mortar fire from unidentified assailants while on its way from the town of Kutum to the town of Hashaba North, 56 kilometres northeast of Kutum, to assess the situation following recent reports of violence in that area. The convoy returned fire. “These attacks will not shake our resolve to fulfil our mandate and help the people of Darfur,” said UNAMID’s Acting Joint Special Representative and Joint Chief Mediator ad interim, Aïchatou Mindaoudou. “I call on the Government of Sudan to investigate the incident and bring the perpetrators to justice.”The UNAMID official’s calls for an investigation into the incident and for the perpetrators to be brought to justice were echoed by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, according to the UN chief’s spokesperson, as well as the Security Council.Mr. Ban’s spokesperson noted that the Secretary-General condemns “in the strongest possible terms” the attack and expresses his condolences to the Government of South Africa, UNAMID and the family of the fallen peacekeeper. In a press statement, the members of the Security Council also condemned “in the strongest terms” the attack and expressed their condolences to the family of the deceased peacekeeper, as well as the Government of South Africa and UNAMID, in addition to calling on the Government of Sudan to swiftly investigate the incident and bring the perpetrators to justice.The Security Council members also reiterated their full support for UNAMID and called on all parties in Darfur to cooperate with the Mission.UNAMID is entrusted with protecting civilians, promoting an inclusive peace process and helping ensure the safe delivery of humanitarian aid across Darfur, the scene of fighting between Sudanese Government troops and their allied militias and rebels since 2003.
