1993 Max van der Stoel, UN Special Rapporteur on Iraq and Europe’s High Commissioner for National Minorities


Presented by Kamal O.M. Amain, a Kurd from Iraq, as representative of many refugees and displaced persons

Max van der Stoel is an untiring advocate of the right to self-determination of peoples all over the world who are subjugated by dictatorship, discrimination or racism. He continually reminds us of the need to be alert to the forces that undermine democracy, and relentlessly promotes the preservation of human rights and the public condemnation of their violation.

Max van der Stoel extends the hand of humanity to minorities and sounds an early note of caution when warning signs appear.

His report on the human rights situation in Iraq has become an important piece of evidence of the atrocities committed by the regime of Saddam Hussein.
