NGO Monitor Legal Analysis: NGOs in the European Framework: EMHRN and the anti-Israel Campaign
This paper explores the legal structure in which NGOs operate and are funded in the European framework. NGOs have clearly defined missions based upon traditional humanitarian principles, values and objectives. The evidence demonstrates, however, that many humanitarian/human rights NGOs do not remain faithful to these principles and values. Instead of promoting universal human rights, these NGOs are primarily engaged in partisan political and ideological advocacy, specifically with respect to anti-Israel campaigning. This paper argues that the existing European principles regarding NGOs need to be reassessed and implemented, in order to ensure that their activities are consistent with these requirements.
FIDH: Prioritizing Politics over Protection
FIDH is a Paris-based federation of 141 NGOs from 92 countries with consultative or observer status with several international bodies. In its mission statement, FIDH seeks to “contribute to the respect of all the rights defined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.” While claiming to be “strict and impartial” in its work, FIDH shows a strong anti-Israel bias by focusing disproportionate resources on condemning Israel, selectively interpreting international humanitarian law, dismissing the context of terrorism, largely ignoring Israeli victims of terror, and denying Israel’s right to self-defense. FIDH receives funding from international and national bodies and foundations, but it does not disclose the sources of its funding.
