OAS: Draft Inter-American Convention against Racism

Clinic students worked with the Observatorio de Discriminación Racial (Racial Discrimination Observatory) from the University of Los Andes (Colombia) in order to prepare briefing and advocacy papers supporting the adoption and improvement of the current draft the “Inter-American Convention against Racism and All Forms of Discrimination and Intolerance.” The product analyzed problematic aspects of the draft Convention and designed strategies to facilitate the participation of civil society organizations.

The Convention was adopted by the OAS in June 2013.
