Preview

This chapter analyzes weaknesses of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination. These include deficient drafting; policies with which we may disagree but which faithfully reflect the political wishes of the majority; and the Convention's far-reaching goal, some of which do not lend themselves to a speedy and full implementation even in developed and sympathetic countries.

Keywords: United Nations; human rights instruments; law-making; racial discrimination; international convention
