World Conference against Racism

The World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance was held in Durban, South Africa, in September 2001. After intensive and often difficult deliberations on a number of issues, the Conference adopted a Declaration and Program of Action that commits Member States to undertake a wide range of measures to combat racism and discrimination at the international, regional and national levels. 

A follow-up conference was held in Geneva, Switzerland, in April 2009. Delegates from more than 100 United Nations (U.N.) member nations met to discuss strategies for eradicating racism. After months of contentious negotiations, the conference adopted a resolution outlining how U.N. member states can eradicate racism. The resolution represents a broad consensus on how to tackle racism and related forms of intolerance around the world.
