“Citing the use of satellite images by the independent International Commission of Inquiry into alleged human rights violations in Syria and by the United Nations Secretary-General’s Panel of Experts on Accountability in Sri Lanka, Šimonović said geographers can make a great contribution to the UN’s human rights work. He urged them to dedicate more of their resources and expertise to the cause of human rights.
‘Human rights needs your brains as well as your hearts,’ he said.”
