Paraguay Will Host Integration for Peace Summit

ASUNCION – Paraguay will host the Integration for Peace Summit next week, a gathering focused on sustainable development, human rights, justice, democracy and the private sector’s social responsibility.

Organization of American States Secretary-General Luis Almagro and International Criminal Court Justices Howard Morrison and Antoine Kesia Mbe-Mindua have confirmed their attendance at the Oct. 4-8 summit.

Among the other participants will be Augustino Ramadhani, president of the African Court of Human Rights, and representatives of legislatures, governments and courts from Argentina, Guatemala, Venezuela, Mexico, Uruguay, Bolivia, the United States, Costa Rica, Honduras and El Salvador.

On the first day of the meeting, there will be a performance at the Asuncion Municipal Theater by the Cateura Orquesta de Reciclados, a group formed by young people from a neighborhood next to the capital’s largest garbage dump who play instruments made from recycled materials.

On the last day of the conference, participants will visit Iguazu Falls on the border of Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil.

The conference will have sessions on education, diplomacy, legislation and politics, as well as the private sector’s social responsibility to sustainable development, organizers said.

Participants are expected to sign a joint statement on justice, education and international public policies to achieve the UN sustainable development goals for 2030, Gabriela Lara, director of event organizer Embajada de Activistas por la Paz, or EMAP, told EFE.

“In the area of justice, we advocate for democratization of the United Nations and the independence and autonomy of the International Criminal Court,” Lara said.

This will be the second Integration for Peace Summit, with the first being held in 2015 in Santiago, Chile, where the final statement covered areas such as genocide prevention and penalties, the strengthening of peace among nations and the happiness of all humans.
