Elimination of Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance

On behalf of the second article expressed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, no people in the world should suffer any kind of discrimination. Although the United Nations unceasing commitment to eradicate this -translated into several documents and plans of action- contemporary forms of discrimination and intolerance can still be seen. 

Taking in consideration the globalization process and it consequent changes in human spheres, we can sustain that some discrimination and intolerance incidents are occurring through different areas. National and international migration flows, job access and nationalisms are just some figures of them.

Certainly we can remark that institutions and governments are faltering in dealing with this challenge, and that multiculturality values should be spread around the institutions and political structures. Delegates are encouraged to explore the contemporary forms of discrimination and intolerance, and to create action plans that can be helpful to extinguish them completely.
