The threats of international homicide, violence against children, human trafficking and sexual violence are important to address to promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development. They pave the way for the provision of access to justice for all and for building effective, accountable institutions at all levels.
While homicide and trafficking cases have seen significant progress over the past decade, there are still thousands of people at greater risk of intentional murder within Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa and around Asia. Children’s rights violations through aggression and sexual violence continue to plague many countries around the world, especially as under-reporting and lack of data aggravate the problem.
On the most important aspect of the question of Peaceful word is the origin of the arms that are used in wars and for criminalities. The problematic here is to focus the discussion on the determinant role of the “Arms industry” in the spread of violence around the word.
The most important Questions here are:
- Who are World’s largest arms exporters?
- Where do countries in conflict get their weapons from?
- Where are potentially destabilizing build ups of weapons occurring?
- What is the relationship between access to natural resources and arms transfers?
- How people a killed in these conflicts?
With the answers to these questions, participants can analyze the relationship between the production of Arms that is an economic activity and the war and criminality that other the word cause insecurity, instability and millions death.
Step1: Participants will find out the name and the geographic situation of ich continent on the Atlas.
Step 2: Participants receive flyers with the name or maps of the countries that are classified as “World’s largest arms exporters” (most of the time the 10 country on the top)
Step 3: Participants receive flyers with the name or maps of the countries that are classified as “World’s largest arms importers” (most of the time the 10 country on the top)
Step 4: Participants receive 50 ships. These ships represent the global volume of arms that the 10 top exporters sell other the world.
Step 5: Participants receive 50 ships. These ships represent the global volume of arms that the 10 top importers receive from various suppliers.
Step 6: Participants receive flyers with the name or the flag of countries where there are military conflicts.
Step 7: Participants receive 50 ships. These ships represent the number of victims in these conflicts.
Step 8: Participants receive 50 ships. These ships represent the global volume of naturals resources in these conflict areas.
Step 9: participants will divide step by step the ships on the Atlas referring to the characteristics and their implication in the problem that is announced.
Step 10: Accord to the real data from the moderator/s the participants will corrects the layout of the ships.
Step 11: Participant will give their comments on the design of the Atlas with the focus on the problematic of Arms industries, Military Conflicts, Victims and natural resources.
