Humanitarian Intervention Initiative (H-II)
Url: www.unarts.org/H-II

"Non Lethal Fires" hearts and minds encompasses the new international strategic focus for Humanitarian Intervention with an objective of ending or reducing the suffering that is the result of civil war, humanitarian crisis, or crimes of genocide. The goal of humanitarian intervention is minimization of the suffering of civilians in a particular state in accordance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).

The Declaration was explicitly adopted for the purpose of defining the meaning of the words "fundamental freedoms" and "human rights" appearing in the United Nations Charter, which is binding on all member states. For this reason, the Universal Declaration is a fundamental constitutive document of the United Nations. The 1968 United Nations International Conference on Human Rights advised that it "constitutes an obligation for the members of the international community" to all persons. The declaration has served as the foundation for two binding UN human rights covenants, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the principles of the Declaration are elaborated in international treaties such as the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, the International Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, the United Nations Convention Against Torture and many more.

The focus of the H-II project is global exposure, strategic planning, development, engagement and stabilization of humanitarian emergencies. This spotlight targets the vulnerable in efforts to engage an immediate international response.

Humanitarian Resource Institute is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, established with a mission focus to "Bridge Unmet Needs to Untapped Resources" through the development of initiatives associated with economic, social, cultural and humanitarian issues worldwide.
