Our Write & Unite; children's stories competition celebrates the International Decade for People of African Descent

There are around 200 million people identifying themselves as being of African descent live in the Americas. Many millions more live in other parts of the world, outside of the African continent. The promotion and protection of human rights of people of African descent has been a priority concern for the United Nations. For this reason, the International the General Assembly of the United Nations, declared that the Decade for People of African Descent (resolution 68/237) be observed from 2015 to 2024. This decade provides a solid framework for the United Nations, Member States, civil society and all other relevant actors to join together with people of African descent and take effective measures for the implementation of the programme of activities in the spirit of recognition, justice and development.

The theme of our 2016 Write & Unite was conceived with the Decade for People of African Descent in mind. We invite legal residents of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (including the Caribbean areas) to submit a story that shows, in a fun, playful or inspiring way that everyone, black, white, yellow, ginger or brown is equal and has the same intrinsic human value.

Attacks against refugees, asylum seekers and migrants are unacceptable, say heads of European human rights institutions

On the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, the heads of Europe’s main intergovernmental human rights institutions call for a strong response to xenophobic attacks against migrants, asylum seekers and refugees, and call on governments and state authorities to uphold their international obligations in this regard.

With the drownings in the Mediterranean persisting as refugees, asylum seekers and migrants continue to risk their lives to reach safety, this is the time to strengthen our commitment to the right to life and to dignity, said Michael O’Flaherty, Director of the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA), Michael Georg Link, Director of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), and Christian Ahlund, Chair of the Council of Europe’s European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI).
