The fifth edition of the series of Regional Expert Consultations against Racism and Discriminations will deconstruct racism, and unpack the societal challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic related to racism and discriminations. Today’s global conjuncture calls for a deep reflection on what direction the international community wants to take in the midst of a renewed emergence of racist purposes.
The online consultations seek to contribute to the global rethinking in the lead-up to the 20th anniversary in 2021 of the World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance, as well as to the International Decade for People of African Descent (2015-2024). They will result in a set of recommendations that will guide UNESCO’s future work in combatting racism and discriminations.
