Coverage: United States
The U.N. High-Level Group report on the Alliance of Civilizations offers little more than platitudes, wishful thinking, one-sided analysis, faulty justification for constraining freedom of expression, and repackaged calls for increased assistance from Western countries. The United States should oppose proposals to give the alliance a permanent mandate, establish a permanent funding stream, and create new supporting mechanisms.
