Topic: INDIA FIRST: Public & Foreign Policy

We, MIIM and UNADAP, are very proud to announce the Prestigious ONLINE Independence Day 2020 Management Summit on 15th AUGUST 2020 at the virtual platform of Marian International Institute of Management, Kuttikkanam, KERALA. This is a platform where professionals, academicians, social workers and researchers join together to discuss deliberate and present their thoughts and research findings.
 
As the Executive Director of UNADAP and a Gender Champion, it has always been my personal prerogative to promote female leadership and to champion female academics, because there's so much that we could learn from women. Life has taught values through our mothers, sisters, aunties grandmothers, teachers, and the list goes on; but sadly, we have neglected women over the years. God created us equally, with each a unique gifting that we may complement each other.
That being said, I ensured that we empanelled 10 female delegates as observers to help us define and guide the future course of empowering women and direct us to the part of Gender Equality according to the UN SDG 5.
JAI HIND!
Dr. Dominic F Dixon

July 02, 2020 - CRIMINAL COPS ARRESTED AND CHARGED WITH MURDER, AS RECOMMENDED BY DR. DIXON, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, UNADAP.

In a letter to the Hon'ble Chief Minister of Tamilnadu and subsequent telephonic discussions, Dr. Dixon, the Executive Director of UNADAP had recommended the arrests of the criminal cops, and to charge them with homicide (murder). <<<Read the letter here>>>

Thanks to the Suo Motu W.P. (MD) No.7042 of 2020​, by the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court, the police officers have been arrested. <<<READ THE PETITION HERE>>>

Inspector Sridhar, sub Inspectors Raghu Ganesh and Balakrishnan and constable Murugan have been arrested by the Crime Branch of Tamil Nadu's CID (Criminal Investigation Department) under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

"FIRs have been altered to 302 IPC. 12 special teams under IG and SP (CB-CID) are investigating all angles," Shankar, Inspector General (CB-CID) stated.

The CB-CID has modified both FIRs - one each for the death of the father, Jeyaraj, and the son, Beniks - and to include murder charges against two sub-inspectors (Raghu Ganesh and Balakrishnan), two constables and two other individuals.

The police had earlier only registered cases of suspicious deaths.

On the occasion of "National Doctor's Day, UNADAP honours our hero, Dr. Hemalatha.
On Monday, the 29th of June, 2020, a message was posted in the WhatsApp group of the past pupils of St. Marys AI School, Chennai, that a person had succumbed to COVID-19 at the Apollo Hospital, Greems Road, Chennai. The entire group had brainstormed as to how best we could reach out this family who was in a dire financial situation. and in chronic grief at the death of the father of the house. At this, a group member, Suresh had given the details of the deceased to Dr. Dominic Dixon of UNADAP, and whilst the entire group stood in prayer, we had spoken to Dr. Hemalatha, that was in-charge of the COVID-19 war room at the hospital, and requested her to waive the amount of ₹3,14,000 that the deceased had owed for the treatment.
Immediately, Dr. Hemalatha had promised Dr. Dixon that she would do her best to help the grieving family. She then spoke to the medical director, Dr. Venkatachellam, and expressed the plight of the family. Immediately, they waived the entire outstanding amount, arranged for the clearance of the body, spoke to the medical inspector to expedite the report, and discharged the body, whilst comforting the family.
UNADAP honours Dr. Hemalatha with a HUMANITARIAN CITATION AWARD and a cash award of ₹25,000.

STORY OF HOPE

Nethra, a 13-year-old in the city of Madurai of Tamilnadu, who convinced her father, a barber, to give Five Lakh rupees for the poor during the Coronovirus pandemic outbreak, that the family had been saving for her education and for Nethra to pursue her civil service when the time comes. This act of selflessness and kindness needs to be recognized and rewarded.

 

The Hon'ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi Ji, in his Mann Ki Baat speech to the nation, appreciated Nethra and her family.

 

Through UNADAP's accreditation (MORE), Nethra would be given the opportunity to speak, on behalf of UNADAP, at the UN CSO conferences in New York and in Geneva, addressing Civil Society forums and conferences. This would give her an opportunity and responsibility to speak to leaders, academics, politicians and civilians, encouraging them to reach out to the poorest of the poor. This is a non-governmental opportunity.

NETHRA is truly an Ambassador to the poor, teaching the world love through giving.

The DIXON SCHOLARSHIP has awarded Nethra a scholarship amount of ₹100,000.

COVID-19, UNADAP CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY

In response to our civic duty, officers of UNADAP have ​given large portions of their income to support migrant workers, families with low income and the destitute; with financial assistance and food rations. We have reached out to civilians in the cities of Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. We have provided face masks and hand sanitizers to Bangalore city police. UNADAP has made financial contributions to the Archdiocese of Bangalore (BMSS Disaster Relief Fund) for their outreach programs towards the distribution of food items to the poor.

As UNADAP remains closed and perhaps uncertain of reopening in the coming months, every single employee will still receive their salaries in full.

We have restrained from posting pictures of our acts of civic charitable duty, as we feel that we need to protect the dignity of the beneficiaries and not reveal their identities.

AFRICAN PEACE MISSION

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.

UNADAP is pleased to announce and congratulate India's new

Foreign Affairs Minister, Dr Subrahmanyam Jaishankar

Celebrated former top diplomat Dr Subrahmanyam Jaishankar has been appointed the new Minister of External Affairs. Jaishankar, who was previously the foreign secretary during the Narendra Modi government's first term in office, was a surprise addition to the Narendra Modi Cabinet 2.0, which took oath on Thursday.

Before he became the foreign secretary, Subrahmanyam Jaishankar served as India's ambassador to the United States as well as China.

A 1977-batch Indian Foreign Service (IFS) officer, Subrahmanyam Jaishankar played a major role during the Doklam stand-off negotiations with China. The 2017 Doklam stand-off was among India and China's worst crises; Chinese and Indian soldiers were engaged in an eye-to-eye confrontation for over two months.

Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, who had China expertise thanks to his experience of serving as Delhi's ambassador to Beijing, led the negotiations to resolve the crisis.

During the Manmohan Singh years, Subrahmanyam Jaishankar was involved in negotiating the landmark and controversial Indo-US nuclear deal.

Subrahmanyam Jaishankar is the son of late K Subrahmanyam, one of India's leading strategic analysts. Subrahmanyam Jaishankar is a graduate of St Stephen's College and has an MA in Political Science and an MPhil and PhD in international relations from Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).

S Jaishankar is married to Kyoko Jaishankar and has two sons and a daughter.

In 2019, S Jaishankar was conferred with Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian award of India.

Secretary-General’s message on Human Rights Day

For 70 years, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights has been a global beacon – shining a light for dignity, equality and well-being … and bringing hope to dark places.

The rights proclaimed in the Declaration apply to everyone — no matter our race, belief, location or other distinction of any kind.

Human rights are universal and eternal.

They are also indivisible.  One cannot pick and choose among civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights.

Today we also honour the human rights defenders risking their lives to protect people in the face of rising hatred, racism, intolerance and repression.

Indeed, human rights are under siege around the world.

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."

Dr. Dominic Dixon, United Nations Office in Geneva. April 22, 2018

"Federal/ Political Land Dispute" & "Settlement and Hostage Negotiation."

SESSION ONE:
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'.

HOSTAGE NEGOTIATIONS
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.
