Racism and International Organizations 2021: Speaker Series
April 1, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
This year, we mark the 20th anniversary of the Durban World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance. In 2020, events in the US have sparked again a global discussion on the need to address all forms of racism the world over. Examining the norm-setting, legal, policy, and narrative-changing activities of various international organizations, the speaker series shows both successes and limitations of multilateral approaches toward combating racial discrimination and promoting social cohesion.
On April 1st, 2021, Noureddine Amir, Chair of the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) will discuss processes, politics, impacts and partnerships of the CERD and its role to monitor the implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.
