Closing Paragraph

It is disheartening to see so much conflict and unrest happening around the world. From violent protests in Nigeria to questionable election practices in Tanzania, it is clear that there is still much work to be done to ensure that human rights are protected and democratic processes are upheld. The EU’s decision to increase funding for military aid to Ukraine may bring some peace and stability to the region but it is important to recognize the potential for international aid to perpetuate conflicts rather than solve them. It is crucial for governments and international organizations to work towards peaceful resolutions and the promotion of human rights.
