The present publication compiles the adopted texts of the Durban Declaration and Programme of Action (8 September 2001, Durban, South Africa), the Outcome Document of the Durban Review Conference (24 April 2009, Geneva, Switzerland) and the Political Declaration of the High-Level meeting of the General Assembly to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the adoption of the Durban Declaration and Programme of Action (22 September 2011, United Nations Headquarters, New York, United States of America).

These documents provide a comprehensive international framework to address the scourge of racism and place the victims at the centre of the efforts ofthe international community to prevent, combat and eradicate racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance. The hopes of millions of victims are pinned on the implementation of these documents. Racism and racial discrimination attack the core of a person’s dignity, for they seek to divide the human family, to which all people and individuals belong, into categories, some of which are considered more worthy than others. History has proved time and again that, when allowed to take root, discrimination, racism and intolerance shatter the very foundations of societies and damage them for generations. The road to a world free from racism is not an easy one. It requires political will and long-term commitments. So far we have done too little, too slowly.
