SOCIAL RECIPROCITY

At present, reciprocity is considered a universally accepted principle of international law, essential application in international relations, under which, in the absence of standard applicable to a subject, or as a complement to an existing rule, a State adopts a certain behavior in a symmetrical response to that adopted by another State.
This mechanism, fully tested, which has been good for centuries by states and their elites, should be good, too, without any problem, by its citizens.
For example, remember that in terms of diplomatic status to the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations it provides that, subject to the provisions of the Convention allows a State to apply another restrictive interpretation of treatment in response to a similar attitude thereof; or may, conversely, reciprocally apply two countries more favorable treatment in the matter had agreed ones.
This is the aim of this proposal, move to a model of true reciprocity between states. The reciprocity between their societies
The principle of reciprocity can not be interpreted as meaning that a State, by the fact follow a certain behavior to another, is entitled to demand parallel treatment, the interpretation of reciprocity; It lies in the fact that a State can refuse a certain treatment of another if the latter fails to take before the first similar to this has attitude. And that intend to present written proposals.

I) THE ABUSE OF THE PRINCIPLE OF RECIPROCITY by the oligarchies LEADERS
So far, this principle has been the basis for the application of diplomatic privileges and immunities to the laws of defense and mechanisms relating to breach of provisions of international treaties, when both sides agreed.
The obvious observation is that these failures are, always, behind the freedom and security and often the lives of its citizens. We will not mention here mechanisms of social and ideological indoctrination. Nor we will refer to the “widgets” that every day inculcate “if societies are above the other,” or that “intolerance will bring us victory.”

II) NOT SPEAK OF interfere in other sovereign countries, OF ATTACKING HIS SOVEREIGNTY
Reciprocity is undoubtedly a practical concept in international relations. In this sense it is an equivalent action that depends on an action or reaction of another State. Equivalence does not require absolute and in some cases is impossible to determine whether an action is exactly equivalent to the other. The requirement of equivalence on reciprocity illustrates the fact that many relationships in the international arena are not reciprocal, often “claims or demands reciprocity fraudulent claims are hiding domination or exploitation.” Significantly, however, the international relations theory reciprocity has been considered as an instrument to achieve development of relations of mutual trust and long-term reciprocal obligations and also an incentive for compliance with international standards.

III) it is a mechanism ASSESSMENT AND MEASURES THOUGHT FOR COMPLIANCE WITH THE Universal Declaration of Human Rights
In this context, it should be recalled that cooperation must respect the principle of the sovereignty of states. Also, reciprocity has been considered as an appropriate form of behavior that generates cooperation between sovereign states. Certain authors have divided reciprocity in specific and diffuse. In the specific obligations and rights they are attributed to certain actors. Diffuse, that would be our case, entails the fact that operating in accordance with generally accepted performance parameters. Reciprocity can take place both between two states, ie, bilaterally or between more than two states, ie multilaterally. Reciprocity implies a conditional action that depends on the actions of others.

IV) CAN NOT SPEAK OF RETALIATION WHEN violate the most basic rights of persons
Finally, it should be recalled that reciprocity, in any way, be interpreted as retaliation. Remember that retaliation is a limited reaction of a State against certain conduct of another State which hurts him, which is contrary to international law, but it is presumed justified by previous violation of the same right to the other State aggressor. Retaliation is certainly a reaction against the spirit and essence of reciprocity. In the context of human relations themselves, a similar dynamic in a certain way on reciprocity. Even in colloquial language is described as inconsequential to people who do not act according to this dynamic. Appropriateness, proportionality and opportunity are the expression of well-applied reciprocity.
Current policies and legal interpretations for the implementation of universal rights have become a failure, needless to say, failure that has only one responsible. Human greed. It has also been a failure the “feel-good” philosophy, which has led to prioritize who does not respect, avoid conflict renouncing what with the blood of many people has been achieved.

V) THE SUCCESS OF THE CONCEPT OF ‘LAND OF EQUIVALENT PROTECTION »EU
This concept was developed by the European legislator to promote and ensure the privacy of its citizens. Even the United States has had to modify twice its sectoral regulations, and perhaps there will be a third. It is recalled here, special sentences in recent years the ECJ that consolidate this vision.
Citizens around the world have benefited from this concept, including US citizens, who have never set foot in Europe, they have been reinforced their freedoms.

PROPOSALS

A) THE “RATE reciprocity”.
Those who have less scruples pay more.
Like a Tobin tax was designed, can be designed one that serious capital to go or come from a country with less protection regime Human Rights rate. You only need to use, every year, one of the many studies and rankings on Human Rights compliance with international institutions publish, and make their economic correspondence.
This rate is especially important for companies that take advantage of offshoring, looking for countries with low or no compliance with the minimum requirements in wages, working conditions or environmental.

B) THE LIMITATION OF INVESTMENTS IN SETTLEMENT MECHANISMS OF IDEOLOGICAL.
You can not finance subversion of the achieved social rights and freedoms won.
One of the forms of social subversion is financing in third countries of institutions designed to break your social harmony, impose a model of life and justify the privileges and the atrocities made in the own country, seeking to impose a way of understanding the world over of how society understands the reciprocal welcoming country. This is a direct attack on reciprocity.

C) MECHANISMS FOR SPECIAL PROTECTION AREAS.
You can not give weapons or technology who uses them against his own people.
Ban on selling weapons and ideological control tools, such as technology, to countries with lower level of protection of human rights

D) SOCIAL REVIEW MECHANISMS. APPLICATION OF RULES OF TRANSPARENCY IN INVOLVING FOREIGN INVESTMENTS IN STATE AND OTHER PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION.
The investments made with support from the public purse, they always have a plus ethics
All investments made by the state, even altruistic level (NGOs, development plans, etc) must have as a prerequisite the mandatory development of personal and social freedoms of citizens of the receiving State aid.
It is not permissible to use public money to open doors to companies that are working for the annihilation of Human Rights or the countries that allow it.

E) INVOLVEMENT LEGAL RESIDENTS AND passersby on the norms of reciprocity.
Absolute respect for the host societies, its social uses, fashions and customs.
This philosophy of reciprocity, States may demand it residents and bystanders who reside temporarily or permanently in the reciprocal state. The receiving State must have access to educational tools for residents and bystanders, and coercive measures against anyone who violates the rules of reciprocity. And it is the responsibility of the national state resident or passerby let you know and understand that it is a standard courtesy binding on the receiving state.
This problem, just do not find with refugees, citizens that their State has definitively left the, themselves seeking ways of integration, although these same elites, ours and theirs, we present them as nearly criminals.
