A Report from the United Nations World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia, and Related Intolerance, Durban, South Africa, 2001
Maran reports on the World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia, and Related Intolerance that took place under United Nations auspices in Durban, South Africa, in September 2001. In this global forum, which the Bush administration effectively boycotted, member states were to commit to remedying and ultimately eliminating racism and related violations. The report summarizes major themes of the conference, among them reparations as an internationally accepted principle for compensating people for violations of their human rights, race and gender, environmental racism, migrants’ rights, and race and criminal justice.
