The Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination (CERD) sets standards for race equality and non-discrimination as part of the UN system for human rights protection. In August 2003, the UN supervisory committee on the Convention issued its findings on the UK's compliance, including measures which should be taken to enhance race equality in the UK and areas of concern for compliance with the Convention. The Committee's report considers the UK's implementation of CERD in light of the UN's report. Topics discussed include: the legal status of CERD in UK law and the legislative framework for protection of non-discrimination; the use of CERD standards in policy development and strategies to ensure effective implementation of rights; policing and the criminal justice system; the permissibility of discrimination in relation to immigration control; concerns regarding racial hate speech, and discrimination against gypsies and traveller communities; the reporting process and possible measures to improve access and effectiveness.
