Joint Statements on human rights situation in China at the 50th UN Human Rights Council

Map of the Month 06/2022

At the beginning of the 50th UN Human Rights Council, the Netherlands delivered a cross-regional joint statement (JST) on behalf of 46 other states in which they expressed their grave concern about the human rights situation in China, particularly in Xinjiang. This comes in the context of the publication of the Xinjiang Police Files and the recent visit of UN High Commissioner Bachelet to China. Cuba on the other hand opposed any politicisation, double standards or interference in China's internal affairs in the name of 69 states.

Proposals about the WTO Working Programme on Electronic Commerce (incl. "E-Commerce Moratorium")

Map of the Month 06/2022

The Work Programme on Electronic Commerce was adopted at the second WTO Ministerial Conference in 1998. Members agreed not to impose tariffs on electronic transmissions for the time being ("E-Commerce Moratorium"). This exemption has been extended at all subsequent WTO Ministerial Conferences so far. An extension of the Moratorium during the 12th Ministerial Conference cannot be taken for granted.

Resolutions on the health emergency in Ukraine at the 75th World Health Assembly

Map of the Month 05/2022

During the 75th World Health Assembly Ukraine and Russia introduced resolutions on 23 and 24 May that addressed the health emergency in Ukraine and in refugee-hosting countries. While the Ukrainian resolution, among other demands, clearly condemns the aggressor and calls on Russia to stop military attacks on health facilities, the Russian resolution makes no reference to the instigator of the war and the attacks on health infrastructure. Instead, it refers to the humanitarian situation “in and around Ukraine” blurring lines about the victims of the war of aggression.

34. Special Session of UN Human Rights Council on Ukraine

Map of the Month 05/2022

On 12 May, the 34th Special Session of the UN Human Rights Council on the deteriorating human rights situation in Ukraine stemming from the Russian aggression took place in Geneva. Ukraine had requested the session and also submitted a draft resolution. It was adopted with only China and Eritrea voting against. It strengthens the mandate of the Commission of Inquiry. Many diplomats also expressed concern about the global impact of the war on food and energy security. Russia boycotted the meeting.
