UN Experts Mark International Human Rights Day With Call for States to Intensify Efforts to Combat Discrimination And Exclusion
PDF File Size: 26 KB | Download   
This International Human Rights Day, 10 December 2007, we the Special Procedures mandate holders of the United Nations Human Rights Council
highlight the need to intensify efforts to combat discrimination and exclusion, which continue to impair the rights, dignity and access to justice of millions of individuals and innumerable communities worldwide. Discrimination infects societies in every region of the world and is a root cause of many human rights violations. In civil and political as well as economic, social and cultural spheres, the extraordinary impact of discrimination on human rights forms a common thread between our mandates. Discrimination may be deeply and historically entrenched or, as our societies have changed and evolved, it may emerge in new yet equally abhorrent forms. Discrimination continues to distort the economic, social and political contours of societies. Individuals and communities face discrimination and exclusion on the basis of their race, ethnicity, religion, language, sex or sexual orientation among many other grounds. Discrimination based on gender continues to be a concern in every country of the world. Discrimination may deny certain individuals or groups a political voice or representation, which in turn hinders their ability to influence decisions that impact destructively upon their daily lives. Discrimination can also lead to segregation, anesthetization and persistent poverty. Commonly these individuals and groups face obstacles and discriminatory practices which deny them access to justice.
