Edizione 39 // PRINCIPI DI GRANTMAKING PER I DIRITTI UMANI – AFFRONTARE LA SFIDA CLIMATICA – RAPPORTO 2021 DI FREEDOM HOUSE – MAINSTREAMING CHILDREN’S RIGHTS – COORDINATED GLOBAL PHILANTHROPY NEEDS TO ADDRESS GLOBAL THREATS – PRESENTATION OF THE EU-FUNDED COLLABORATE FOR IMPACT ACTION

ONLINE “I PRINCIPI DI GRANTMAKING PER I DIRITTI UMANI”

Questi sei principi nascono per aiutare le fondazioni ed enti filantropici ad allineare le loro pratiche di supporto e finanziamento ai diritti umani. Possono supportare le organizzazioni a rileggere le proprie pratiche interne, a guidare e facilitare il dialogo tra fondazioni e enti filantropici diversi, a favorire percorsi di apprendimento tra pari e di collaborazione tra enti nel campo dei diritti umani. Sono pensati come uno strumento
di autoriflessione e crescita qualitativa.

Sono stati sviluppati da Ariadne (European Funders for Social Change and Human Rights), Human Rights Funders Network e Philanthropy Advancing Women’s Human Rights (PAWR) e sono frutto di un processo di consultazione sia con i membri delle rispettive organizzazioni, network di supporto alla filantropia, che con rappresentanti delle organizzazioni della società civile che ricevono finanziamenti per promuovere e proteggere diritti umani.

“LA DEMOCRAZIA SOTTO ASSEDIO”, ONLINE IL RAPPORTO 2021 DI FREEDOM HOUSE

Il rapporto annuale di Freedom House “Freedom in the World” traccia le tendenze globali dei diritti politici e delle libertà civili. Mentre la pandemia, l’insicurezza economica e i conflitti violenti devastano il mondo, i difensori della democrazia hanno subito nuove pesanti perdite nella loro lotta contro gli autoritarismi. L’edizione di quest’anno, intitolata “Democrazia sotto assedio”, rileva che meno di un quinto della popolazione mondiale vive ora in paesi completamente liberi; registra inoltre diversi cambi nel livello di libertà e libertà di espressione rispetto all’anno precedente.

MAINSTREAMING CHILDREN’S RIGHTS: INVESTMENTS FOR A BETTER TOMORROW

Thirty-one years after the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, ‘progress has gone backwards on every key measure of childhood’ according to a report published earlier this month by UNICEF.

As a direct result of the Covid-19 crisis, more than 168 million schoolchildren globally have seen their schools close from one day to the next, with one in three having been unable to access remote learning, and many children expected to never pick up their education again. The pandemic increased levels of child poverty, with an expected increase of 15 per cent projected in developing countries. Lockdowns and the breakdown of support systems around the world furthermore gave rise to a spur of violence against children, including sexual violence, neglect, child marriage, female genital mutilation and the worst forms of child labour. While suffering less than the general population in terms of health impact, children may very well end up being amongst the hardest hit yet most hidden victims of the pandemic.  

COORDINATED GLOBAL PHILANTHROPY NEEDS TO ADDRESS GLOBAL THREATS

Long-term thinkers, including in philanthropy, have been worried about the risks of a pandemic since long before Covid-19 broke out.

Jeff Skoll has famously focused on this issue for a decade, as has Bill Gates. In 2010, I was one of these philanthropists worried about the risk of a global pandemic. I was specifically concerned about the ability of diseases to spread rapidly through the reach of global aviation. I reached out to develop projects that would engage with the existing aviation regulation institutions to help prevent spread through travel. At the time, though, no institution was willing to take up the issue: the governments that supported the global governance systems didn’t have pandemic prevention as a priority, and the institutions were limited by their own individual mandates.
