Non-Self-Governing Territories are defined as territories whose peoples have not gained self-government but have received international solidarity through a week celebrated annually for the period from 25-31 May of each year to support these peoples and advocate for their rights.

The General Assembly of the United Nations urged the States in charge of those territories to take effective measures to protect and guarantee the inalienable rights and to provide moral and material assistance to the peoples of the territories and empower them to benefit from their natural resources, since the interests of the peoples of those territories take precedence.

 NIHR, which is concerned with defending human rights declares its full solidarity with the peoples of those territories around the world and urges the states in charge of non-self-governing territories to take the necessary measures to achieve sustainable political, economic and social development for their peoples, as well as education, health and human rights.
