There are various egregious human rights violations occurring all around the world. This nonpartisan Diet Members' group will work towards protection and promotion of human rights.

Message to Diet Members from the Nonpartisan Parliamentary Association for Reconsidering Human Rights Diplomacy

In recent years, there have been egregious human rights violations in many parts of the world that cannot be overlooked. The current situation is not only reported by the media but is also announced by various government agencies around the world as serious reports and warnings.

There are reports from experts that shows how unimaginable things are happening today. With the accelerating pace of statements, resolutions, and sanctions by Western countries on these human rights issues, the world is increasingly watching Japan's actions to see what kind of legal system Japan, whose Constitution calls for "respect for fundamental human rights," will put in place to deal with these issues.

In order to further enhance the promotion of respect for human rights, we are launching the Parliamentary Association as described above. We sincerely hope that you, the members of the Diet, will agree with us and participate in our activities.
