Dear xxxxxxxxx,

Thank you for your letter dated 19 July. We appreciate that you actually refer to our arguments, and are happy to start a discussion about the issue.

The interpretation of human rights is constantly changing, and nowadays there are no doubts any more that conscientious objection to military service is a human right, derived from Art.

Programme and Finance Worker

Unbelievable but true: Howard will be leaving the WRI staff next September after many years in the office -- we won't tell you how many years, as it might hurt his feelings! Having recently been awarded a fellowship by the Einstein Institute in the US, he will be doing research on the nonviolent movement in Kosov@. In the meanwhile we are looking for a new staff person to take on programme and finance work in the London office. You have already received our job advert in a separate mailing last month.
