Durban's Troubling Legacy One Year Later: Twisting the Cause of International Human Rights Against the Jewish People

By Irwin Cotler

Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), August 20, 2002

The 2001 Durban World Conference Against Racism was intended to be a space in which all countries of the world came together to create an agenda to combat racism. However, the conference focused on the Tehran platform, which depicted Zionism as a violent movement promoting racist supremacy. Cotler discusses the problematic nature of the conference and warns against the dangers of international support for a sanctioned culture of hate and a language that promotes genocidal antisemitism.
