Declaration by the High Representative, Catherine Ashton, on behalf of the European Union on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on 21 March 2012

ID-ER-21-MARCH"The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination is an occasion to underline the European Union's unwavering commitment to fighting all forms of racism and xenophobia. Racial discrimination is contrary to the values on which the EU is based,and we work hard both at home and around the world to stamp it out. Our commitment takes many forms - legislation, awareness-raising campaigns and support to projects run by civil society.

Global efforts to combat racism are based on the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD). We urge all states to ratify and implement the Convention as soon as possible."
