Log-in for full text

This chapter identifies some key aspects of the United Nations treaty system and the work of the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD). They have served to help and hinder the achievement of a fairer social system for those who are the main victims and survivors of racial and gender injustice. The Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women was adopted by the General Assembly in 1967 soon after the Internation Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD). This was followed by the adoption of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 1979 and during the UN Decade for the Advancement of Women. In March 2000, CERD took a momentous step by adopting General Recommendation (GR) 25 on the gender related dimensions of racial discrimination.
