20th Anniversary of the World Conference Against Racism


Durban: 31 July 2021 (TDI): 

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet made a statement that marks the 20th-anniversary celebration of the World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia, and Related Intolerance.

She acknowledges the individuals and entire communities all over the world who endured discrimination and demanding for change for it. In Durban, South Africa had a widespread movement combatting and discrimination and demanding justice, dignity, and equality.

Today, young people are vulnerable to these struggles. Indeed, social movements such as Fridays for Future and Black Lives Matter are driven by internationally connected youth. Therefore, the role of the youth is crucial in devising strategies and fighting racial discrimination. The Durban Declaration and Programme of Action underline these important factors as it also urges States to teach young people and children about human rights education including their right to live in dignity, equality, and mutual respect. Whereas the States have not always implemented these recommendations laid out in Durban.

As the crisis continues, it threatens the education and prospects of young people and aggravating many forms of discrimination all over the world.

Bachelet calls its support for the communities to end all forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia, and intolerance.
