Declaration of the III Baku International Humanitarian Forum

We, politicians, scholars and representatives of culture, education, civil society and the mass media from around the world, assembled in Baku on 31 October and 1 November 2013 at the III Baku International Humanitarian Forum, 

guided by the United Nations Millennium Declaration and the agenda for the post-2015 period, and also taking account of the vast influence of the level of scientific knowledge and humanitarian cooperation achieved at the present time on the transformation of society; 

seeking to make our contribution to the process of realizing the Millennium Development Goals and setting the agenda on this for the post-2015 period with the aim of concentrating efforts and resources in the priority areas for development; 

taking into account the need to achieve solidarity at every level of interstate and regional cooperation, and equally the relevance of scientific, humanitarian and cultural integration in ensuring sustainable development; 

recognizing that the current level of development of information technology, world communications and transport systems and the growing opportunities for the global mobilization of human potential create the conditions for a new level of dialogue between cultures and civilizations; 

drawing attention to the fact that the stimulus of the economy, founded on the uninterrupted increase of consumption, should inevitably have its resource, ethical and humanitarian limitations; 

considering that one of the reasons for the continuing deterioration of the environment throughout the world is the irrational structure of consumption and production, which deepens the existing disproportionality in development and is a cause for serious concern;

calling on the political, cultural and scientific elite, international organizations and representatives of civil society to strengthen cooperation in the era of globalization in line with the demands of the new humanitarian ethics that are coming into their own;

realizing that much remains to be done to ensure the preservation of key factors of sustainable human development and the encouragement of the knowledge-based economy, invoking achievements made in such areas as:

– converging technologies and landmark challenges of the 21st Century;

– humanitarian aspects of economic development;

– scientific innovations and their transfer into education;

– multiculturalism and originality;

– national identity in the postmodern era;

– sustainable development and ecological civilization;

– achievements in molecular biology and biotechnology;

– the topical issues of mass media in the globalizing information network;

we note that the contemporary challenges and threats related to the convergence of managerial and production technology have acquired a global character and demand increased attention from the international community from the point of view of the exposure of new dominant factors in the development of society;

we recognize that the development of human potential through the transformation of scientific innovations in the education system occupies a central place in efforts to ensure the sustainability of the development process and that reinforcing cooperation in this area is the most important humanitarian component of development;

we note the achievements of many countries, including Azerbaijan, in multiculturalism and consider it necessary to study the experience acquired  as a component of the state policy of different countries aimed at achieving consensus in society;

we pay special attention to the need to cover the problems of multiculturalism in the media in order to avert xenophobia, racism, intolerance, and also in order to shape a culture of tolerance;

we express our conviction that in the postmodern era a careful and respectful attitude towards different manifestations of national self-awareness, patience, dialogue and cooperation in an atmosphere of trust and mutual understanding are the best guarantees of peace and security;

we affirm the need to use the principles of sustainable development and call on all countries to ensure planning and consumption at a level of sensible sufficiency and to achieve a way of life that meets the demands of ecological civilization and ecological ethics;

we realize the need to develop technology based on the achievements of molecular biology and biotechnology, in order to improve the quality and length of life and to eliminate differences in these indicators evident in the world at the present time;

we call on international structures and different humanitarian organizations to systematically hold forums, conferences, discussions and round tables with the aim of holding a dialogue of cultures and creating an atmosphere of tolerance;

we note the need to hold this type of forum every year and express our deep gratitude to the President and government of Azerbaijan, the Heydar Aliyev Foundation and all the organizers of the Baku International Humanitarian Forum for holding such a major event, turning Baku on 31 October and 1 November this year into a centre of discussion of humanitarian problems;

we consider it necessary to pass this declaration and use it with the aim of organizing international humanitarian cooperation and assistance to ensure effective coordination in this regard.
