Dr. Paul Victor, Goodwill Ambassador of MORE TRUST to the African continent, with leaders.
Both the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the African Union Agenda 2063 recognize the importance of peace and stability, not only as critical enablers but also as important components of sustainable development. In line with this aspiration, Africa has also continued, with the support of the United Nations and development partners, to address emerging challenges to peace, security and development, such as the rise of terrorism and violent extremism as well as the growing number of migrants, refugees and internally displaced persons. In this regard, African countries continue to attach great importance to tackling the root causes of conflict such as youth unemployment, inequality, and economic and social exclusion, including through the African Peace and Security Architecture and the African Governance Architecture. Recognizing the critical needs and role of women, the African Union declared 2016 the African Year of Human Rights with Particular Focus on the Rights of Women.
Universal values are being eroded. The rule of law is being undermined. Now more than ever, our shared duty is clear: Let us stand up for human rights — for everyone, everywhere. Thank you.

GENDER EQUALITY | Dr. Dominic F Dixon, Executive Director, UNADAP
"As I derive my dictum from the US declaration of independence, that; "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness." I read that declaration with the inclusive sense that both men and women are created equal; thus have a right to equality."

"Federal/ Political Land Dispute" & "Settlement and Hostage Negotiation."
Training to handle demographic land dispute and settlement of two peoples' group with the endangerment of genocide.
For land settlement, Dr. Dixon had to simulate as the country representative for the right to self determination as a peoples group. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and the United Nations were the observers. The final agreement was to call for a truce and to allow minorities the right to education, the right to mother tongue, the right to public sector jobs and the right of the minority group to run for office. The ultimate goal would be for 'one nation one people'.
In the picture, are members of the hostage negotiation team simulation at UNOV. Not mentioning their names for their privacy, the lady in the picture is a diplomat of Brazil to Rome, the gentleman next to her is a permanent representative to the UNOV from the Arab Nations League and the gentleman next to him was the Mediator, is the First Secretary at the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Vienna.
What we see on television and the dramatic intensity of a hostage situation in nothing compared to a simulation or the real deal.
