It has direct and disruptive effects on development, peace and security. Our call for an end to the war around the world is being heard in many places and groups. Although distrust can make enforcement difficult, I am encouraged by the strong support for the complaint we receive from civil society organizations, which can affect and motivate people at the grassroots level. ”
