At its 207th session, in decision 207 EX/Decision 49, the Executive Board decided to inscribe this item on the agenda of the 40th session of the General Conference. The document underscores that racial discrimination, incitement to racial hatred and racial hate crimes represent a threat for all peoples and the international community. With that in mind, the Director-General is requested to strengthen UNESCO’s substantive contribution to the fight against racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia, and related intolerance and to report to the Executive Board, at its 210th session, on the progress made in this matter.
