‘Racism will not pass’… A new article by Dr Lawrence Hill-Cawthorne

Dr Lawrence Hill-Cawthorne has published a new article entitled “‘Racism will not pass’…” on the blog of the European Journal of International Law. The article critically discusses the recent debate that took place in the UN Human Rights Council in light of the police killing of George Floyd in May in the United States. In the article, Dr Hill-Cawthorne considers the manoeuvring by a number of states (particularly western states) that saw a watering down of the original draft resolution that had been presented by the Group of African States and that would have led to the creation of an International Commission of Inquiry into racist police violence in the US.
