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.

IJHRE Issue 5 – HRE and Black Liberation

Situating Black activism and movement building in its historical context, this special issue of the International Journal of Human Rights Education (IJHRE) features articles, essays, commentaries, and book reviews that put the longstanding call for Black lives to matter and the quest for Black liberation in conversation with human rights education as a field of scholarship and practice.

The IJHRE is an independent, double-blind, peer-reviewed, open-access, online journal dedicated to the examination of the theory, philosophy, research, and praxis central to the field of human rights education. This journal seeks to be a central location for critical thought in the field as it continues to expand.
