As part of the Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court Competition, the second Annual
Nelson Mandela Human Rights Lecture will focus on the theme of contemporary forms of racial
discrimination. The lecture is held in collaboration with the African Group of Ambassadors in Geneva. The lecture will be presented online and will reflect on the achievements and remaining challenges of the Durban Declaration and Programme of Action.
The World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance (WCAR) was held in 2001 in Durban, South Africa. Its outcome document, the Durban Declaration and Programme of Action was the foremost mechanism which would serve towards bringing the international community towards speaking with a single voice emphasising that such intolerance would not be acceptable.
