Commissioner to raise UN anti-racism recommendations

The Race Discrimination Commissioner Dr Tim Soutphommasane intends to raise with the Australian government the recommendations from the UN Committee on the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.

Commissioner Soutphommasane attended CERD’s session in Geneva last month, where he told the Committee there are some clear indications that racial intolerance and racial discrimination are on the rise.
