All organisations regularly involved in security and justice assistance have a designated OSJA Lead who is responsible for ensuring consistency in the application of the OSJA Guidance in their department.</p><p>Government departments use the OSJA Guidance as a central part of their risk management procedures.

There was overwhelming support to moving towards negotiation of the new treaty.</p><p>However, the textual elements recommended for consideration do not reflect consensus and we recognise that the negotiations on some aspects of the treaty may be difficult, in particular matters related to marine genetic resources and benefit sharing, and the relationship with existing competent bodies such as the International Maritime Organization and regional fishery management organisations.</p>

star this property answer text <p>​We are gravely concerned by the humanitarian impact of proposals to demolish the village of Susiya in the South Hebron Hills. The demolition could leave up to 100 people, half of them children, without shelter. Demolitions and evictions of Palestinians from their homes cause unnecessary suffering to ordinary Palestinians; call into question Israel’s commitment to a viable two-state solution; and, in all but the most exceptional of cases, are contrary to International Humanitarian Law. Officials from our Embassy in Tel Aviv have repeatedly raised our concerns with Israeli Ministers and senior officials, and urged them to cease this counter-productive policy, and provide a clear, transparent route to construction for Palestinians in Area C.</p> more like this
