The UNESCO Courier against Racism

UNESCO’s actions against racism have been on the top of the agenda since the beginning – the Courier has always provided a powerful platform for debate and discussion of this dangerous and widespread prejudice that continues to blight our world.  According to Poul Duedahl, Professor of History at Aalborg University, Denmark, "there is no doubt that UNESCO's statements on race and the authority with which they spoke had a psychological impact and that they paved the way for a new way of thinking" (Anti-racism: UNESCO’s early mental engineering)

On the occasion of International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (21 March), we invite you to discover the UNESCO Courier issues dedicated to the subject of racism.
