  Declaration of Geneva - W. K. Kellogg Health Sciences Library
Adopted by the General Assembly of the World Medical Association at Geneva in 1948 and amended by the 22d World Medical Assembly at Sydney in 1968, the Declaration Of Geneva was one of the first and most important actions of the Association.
It is a declaration of physicians' dedication to the humanitarian goals of medicine, a declaration that was especially important in view of the medical crimes which had just been committed in Nazi Germany.
The Declaration of Geneva was intended to update the Oath of Hippocrates, which was no longer suited to modern conditions.

 Declaration of Helsinki - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Like the Nuremberg Code, the Declaration made informed consent a central requirement for ethical research while allowing for surrogate consent when the research participant is incompetent, physically or mentally incapable of giving consent, or a minor.
The Declaration also states that research with these groups should be conducted only when the research is necessary to promote the health of the population represented and when this research cannot be performed on legally competent persons.
The Declaration is important in the history of research ethics as the first significant effort of the medical community to regulate itself.

 Al-Ahram Weekly | Opinion | A glimmer of nothing
Barak's declaration, made immediately after the Palestinians refused his dictates, that there is no Palestinian partner was a stab in the back of the Israeli pro-settlement forces that brought him to power, and at the same time a boost to the Likud.
Immediately after some of its points were published in the press, the text of the Geneva Declaration won the support of nearly 40 per cent of Israeli society, despite the opposition of the central leadership of the Labour Party, and the leaders of Shinui and other parties.
The declaration is likely to steer the dialogue among the Palestinians into a discussion of the pros and cons of the declaration -- as if it were the only show in town, and the only possible settlement.

The declaration further stresses that the weather and climate systems do not recognise political borders and that no one can be fully self-reliant in meeting all of its requirements for meteorological services and countries need to work together.

 THE GENEVA DECLARATION ON TERRORISM
It follows that the most dangerous and detrimental form of state terrorism in the world today is that practiced by the nuclear weapons states against the rest of the international community, which is euphemistically called nuclear deterrence.
Hence those government decision-makers in the nuclear weapons states with command responsibility for their nuclear weapons establishments are today subject to personal criminal responsibility and punishment under the Nuremberg Principles for the nuclear terrorism they daily inflict upon all states and peoples of the world community.
We declare that the key to ending all forms of terrorism is the development of new relations among nations and peoples based on unfailing respect for the right to self-determination of peoples, and on a greater measure of economic, political and social equality on a world scale.
