On April 20, representatives from around the world will gather at the United Nations headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, for the Durban Review Conference, or the 2009 UN World Conference Against Racism (aka Durban II). The conference will follow up on the 2001 conference held in Durban, South Africa, says the conference website.


The UN's idea of an anti-racism conference entered the final stretch yesterday with the planning committee deciding Iran ought to preside as a vice-chair, Libya will serve as the chair of the "Main Committee" running the conference and that Cuba will be the "rapporteur." All three human rights paragons will assume their new duties on the first day of "Durban II" set for Monday, April 20.


Despite the controversy over who is in what position and who will be absent, the United Nations' top human rights official, Navi Pillay, reminds countries of the importance of the issue and urges every member state to participate in the process, reports Xinhua.
"Lives are at stake. The future and hope of countless victims of racism lie in your hands," Navi Pillay, the UN high commissioner for human rights, told delegates at a preparatory meeting for the Durban Review Conference.
She also urged the delegates to "transcend their differences and find consensus" over the wording of a draft declaration to be issued at the end of the April 20-24 conference.
