This year marks the 20th anniversary since the World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerances took place in Durban. The gathering created a platform where thought leaders from around the world could engage on the global challenges of racism with the intention of adopting a programme of action that would address these challenges. Decades later, racism has not waned but has taken different and perhaps more extreme and violent forms. It has also found support and expression from political office in many countries across the world. In short, racism has moved from the shadows to the bright lights of political and economic boardrooms. This now requires an equivalent global response.
