Durban Review
UNPO Presidency Member to discuss issues of racism and racial
discrimination in Asia at a forum organised as part of the United
Nations Durban Review Conference.

UNPO Presidency Member and representative for Tibet, Mr. Ngwang
Choephel, will be speaking at an event at the United Nations Durban
Review Conference, which is currently being held in Geneva, Switzerland.

The event is entitled ‘The Lost Issues of Asia’ and has bwtneen
organised to ‘provide a forum for the articulation of voices from Asia
on the various issues that afflict the communities because of racism and
racial discrimination.’

It will also be used as an opportunity to allow different Asian
communities to interact with each other and to highlight issues which
currently affect them. It is also hope that it will facilitate the
sharing of advocacy efforts and strategies amongst the non-governmental
organisations that will be attending.

The Durban Review Conference has been organised to evaluate the progress
towards the goals set by the World Conference Against Racism, Racial
Discrimination, Xenophobia and Programme of Action that was agreed in
Durban, South Africa in 2001.
