Barbados To Train Belize In Monitoring Racial Discrimination

admin Ministry News

Director of the Commission for Pan-African Affairs, Dr. Deryck Murray, has been selected as part of a team of experts to conduct training in Belize on the International Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Racial Discrimination.

The two-day workshop, which begins tomorrow, Wednesday, June 15, will be held at the Radisson Fort George Hotel and Marina in Belize City.

Dr. Murray was invited by the United Nations’ (UN) Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights. The Director said the invitation came "as a result of the UN’s recognition of the high quality of Barbados’ last report" to the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination and "responds to Belize’s request for assistance in preparing its report".

While in Belize, Dr. Murray is also expected to explain how this island intends to monitor and seek to eliminate any form of racial discrimination through a comprehensive approach developed by the Commission.
