ARC●PEACE supports the proposal that the Israeli architects association be suspended from UIA
ARC●PEACE has written to the International Union of Architects (UIA) in support of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), which has proposed that UIA suspends the Israeli Association of United Architects (IAUA) for its failure to discipline members who work is in violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention, which prohibits the transfer of the civilian population of an occupying power into occupied territory. If IAUA cannot be moved to disciplinary action by the repeated and flagrant violations being carried out by some of it members, then UIA must remind IAUA that professional ethics do not exist to be enforced only sometimes.
