U.N.

We often find ourselves working with and through other Chivalric Orders, the senior leadership of other nations, and with other Non-Governmental Organizations [NGO] in order to provide humanitarian aid and other involvement in resolution of serious humanitarian needs or political, ethnic, and religious conflict. Engaging the respect and credibility of our world membership in their home nations, we are able to bring resolution and assistance in matters that quite often become bogged down in the bureaucracy of governments and regulations.

This compendium lists the official (published) OSMTH statements at the UN Geneva in the fields of Human Rights, during official sessions of the Human Rights Council. It only lists those contributions having been reported.

Also included, are the first contribution in this field, made during the UN/DPI meeting at UNESCO in Paris, France, Sept 2008, on the occasion of the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the declaration of Human Rights and our first oral statement at the United Nations in New York in March 2011, during the session of the Committee on Status of Women.

This document also includes the panels or sessions we organised and had a speaker, or a moderator. It DOES NOT include all the personal contributions made by our talented and numerous delegates in Geneva, New York and Vienna, or elsewhere, if they have not been officially recorded/published by the UN as such.
