Abstract

The UN WGEPAD 27th public session: "The Urgency of Now - Systemic Racism and the Lessons of 2020" was held between 30 November to 3 December. This thematic session built on the WGEPAD’s COVID-19 report, systemic racism and global protests, and set the scene for the mid-term review of IDPAD and 20th anniversary of the DDPA. Discussions also took place on the key themes and priorities for the protection of the human rights of people of African descent, positive developments, good practices and how to address systemic racism based on international human rights law. The Working Group adopted conclusions and recommendations, to be presented in a report on the session will be presented to the United Nations Human Rights Council.
