The history and main examples of international solidarity

On 28 June 2022 the webinar “Human Rights: Examples of International Solidarity” was held. During the webinar, we discussed the history and main examples of international solidarity, modern examples of solidarity movements and acts, and their importance in the context of global security, peacebuilding, and protection of human rights. 57 people took part in the webinar.
Solidarity is one of the fundamental values of international relations in the 21st Century. Building greater conciseness about the international solidarity among States and the global community, including by showing how greater enjoyment of human rights-based international solidarity would most likely benefit all States and all peoples in every region of the world.

“In 2012 there was great track dawn on human rights and civil society in Azerbaijan and one of the organizations started a campaign «Art for democracy». They knew that in 2012 there will be a Eurovision contest in Azerbaijan and they decided to use it as a solidarity event in the mining of attracting the attention of the world to the situation in Azerbaijan. … Singer Loreen from Sweden was a winner of Eurovision and after her final song, she made a statement about human rights in Azerbaijan. Unlike the situation with Kalush Orchestra this year, she was not forgiven. It was considered a violation of the rules and she was disqualified. But this year the statement of Kalush Orchestra about Azov was not considered a political but a humanitarian statement. This also shows that Eurovision developed, they can adapt to the situation, can absorb information about what is going on in the outer world. I am sure that this statement made a difference and was a part of bigger advocacy in order to provide activities to support our warriors at Azovstal. But it is very sad that when it was a question of the lives of 20 or 30 human rights defenders in Azerbaijan the global and Eurovision community did not care. So international community needs a big amount of victims to be awakened, to understand that solidarity is needed. While if solidarity would be in place, such tragedy which happened in Ukraine would never happen.” — noted Sasha.

“Solidarity helps us to go through the dark times for human rights. It is an inspiration and empowerment for all people, particularly activists. That is why we launched the project «In Search of Solidarity». Within the framework of the project, educational webinars on human rights and solidarity will be held in Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova, as well as a contest in finding examples of solidarity in local communities, and we will do our best to develop a community of like-minded people,” Nazar said.
