Genuine security, disarmament and the respect of human rights

What we are doing to promote peace

The Australian Greens believe that genuine security can only be achieved by addressing the underlying causes of conflict and basing conflict resolution on cooperation, human rights, natural justice and disarmament, as per the United Nations Charter.

The Australian Greens believe that United Nations mandated military action should be a last resort and can only be justified if it is necessary either to avert a major violation of human rights or attempted genocide or to counter the military invasion of a country. We believe that Australia’s foreign policy should be independent and non-aligned, benefiting both the Australian people and the people of the countries with which we engage.
