Proteger a la población civil en los conflictos armados

Historias de éxito

Desde su creación en el año 2000, el Llamamiento de Ginebra ha involucrado a cerca de 90 AANEs de todo el mundo y ha sensibilizado a miles de líderes y miembros de estos grupos sobre las normas internacionales humanitarias. Hasta el momento, 49 AANEs han firmado la Escritura de Compromiso que prohíbe las minas antipersonal, 23 han firmado la Escritura de Compromiso que protege a los niños en los conflictos armados y 20 han firmado la Escritura  de Compromiso que prohíbe la violencia sexual y la discriminación de género.

El grado de cumplimiento de los compromisos contraídos ha sido elevado en términos generales. Salvo en un caso, no existen hasta la fecha pruebas concluyentes de que se hayan infringido las Escrituras de Compromiso. Los signatarios han adoptado medidas y han colaborado con el Llamamiento de Ginebra en las labores de supervisión del cumplimiento de los compromisos. Además, varios AANEs que no han firmado las Escrituras de Compromiso han adoptado medidas encaminadas al cumplimiento de las normas internacionales, por ejemplo limitando el uso de las minas y/o facilitando la lucha contra estas en las zonas que se encuentran bajo su control.

En los últimos 13 años, el Llamamiento de Ginebra  ha ganado el reconocimiento y el apoyo internacional de diversas instancias como los Estados partes en la Convención sobre la Prohibición de las Minas Antipersonal, las Naciones Unidas, la Unión Europea y la Unión Africana, y la organización está considerada actualmente como una entidad pionera y líder a escala mundial en este ámbito.
