SIDE EVENTS

at UN Human Rights Council Sessions

Current Side Events:

Beyond Policing – Advocates from maroon societies discuss safety and security from a Black freedom perspective

This virtual event, organised by the UN Antiracism Coalition, aims at providing the International Independent Expert Mechanism to Advance Racial Justice and Equality in Law Enforcement (EMLER) and OHCHR with a pathway that is grounded in the experiences and perspectives of people on the ground.

September's Side Events:

Thinking glocally: from theory to action on systemic racism

Hear from experts (academics and those working directly with communities) about their definitions and thoughts on systemic and structural racism and how the mechanism (EMLER), OHCHR, and the UN as a whole can approach this issue in a way that is effective without defaulting to a narrower discussion about police/state violence and individual cases.

June's Side Events:

Resisting Police Violence: Demanding Justice and Accountability for Victims of Systemic Racism

Join the UN Anti-Racism Coalition on a discussion to expand the definition of what it means to be directly impacted by police and State-sanctioned violence and to highlight and recognise the deeper impacts of systemic racism.
