Whereas the member organizations all share a common commitment to human rights and social justice;

Be it Resolved that

For each Executive Meeting, the reports of the Regional Vice-Presidents include information about human rights/other predominant social issues within their Regions;

At each Executive Meeting, specific time be set aside to examine human rights/social issues to determine if, and how, IFSW resources may be directed to facilitate work being done to address these issues and/or to develop recommendations for action by member organizations.
