Fundamental standards of humanity
Commission on Human Rights resolution 2000/69
The Commission on Human Rights,
Gravely concerned at the large number of situations where internal violence causes extensive suffering
and undermines the protection of human rights,
Conscious of the desirability of continuing to study the principles governing the behaviour of all
persons, groups and public authorities,
Emphasizing, in this regard, the importance of promoting and respecting existing norms of international
human rights and humanitarian law,
Recalling its resolution 1999/65 of 28 April 1999, and taking note of the report of the expert meeting on
fundamental standards of humanity (E/CN.4/2000/145, annex) convened in Stockholm from 22 to 24 February
2000 by the Governments of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden,
1. Recognizes the desirability of seeking ways of ensuring the effective promotion and protection
of human rights and fundamental freedoms of all individuals in all situations in a manner consistent with
international law;
2. Also recognizes in this regard the vital importance of the existence in each country of
appropriate national legislation for dealing with such situations in a manner consistent with the rule of law;
3. Further recognizes the desirability of a process of identifying and respecting fundamental
standards of humanity applicable in all situations in a manner consistent with international law, including the
Charter of the United Nations;
4. Welcomes the report of the Secretary-General on fundamental standards of humanity
(E/CN.4/2000/94), and requests the Secretary-General, in consultation with the International Committee of the
Red Cross, to submit a further report to the Commission at its fifty-seventh session covering relevant
developments in relation to the issues identified in these areas;
5. Invites States, international organizations and non-governmental organizations to engage in
discussions in relevant forums on the strengthening of protection of the individual in all situations, with a view
to promoting the ongoing process with respect to fundamental standards of humanity.
