IHRLG IN THE UNITED STATES
Advocating for US Compliance with the Race Convention
spacer_image
In the first year after launching our US Racial Discrimination Program in 1998, IHRLG's work included briefing the Board of Advisors of President Clinton's Initiative on Race regarding its 1998 report. The Board's report ultimately included a section addressing the US government's obligations under human rights treaties in general and the Race Convention specifically. Subsequently, President Clinton issued Executive Order 13107, which called for the domestic implementation of all human rights treaties to which the United States is a party and established an inter-agency working group to coordinate implementation efforts. IHRLG also organized the first-ever public hearing before the US Commission on Civil Rights to address US compliance with international human rights treaty obligations in 1998.

Since 1998, IHRLG has continued to monitor US compliance with the Race Convention and concentrate on establishing and strengthening working relationships among US civil rights and social justice groups with the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, as well as the United Nations Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

Highlights of recent IHRLG action in this area include
