On April 28, 2023, the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination issued reports regarding the state of human rights in Argentina, Niger, the Philippines, Portugal, Russia, and Tajikistan. The report reviewed each country’s performance under the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination and found systemic racial inequities throughout these countries, including concerns about racial profiling, slavery, and human rights violations. In Argentina, the Committee had concerns about police violence and profiling’s disproportionate impact on indigenous people, people of African descent, and migrants. In Niger, the Committee was deeply concerned about the persistence of slavery and the lack of information and investigations into these practices. In the Philippines and Tajikistan, the Committee underscored the disappearances and killings faced by human rights defenders and representatives of indigenous communities and ethnic minorities. In Portugal, the Committee emphasized reports of people of African descent experiencing institutional racism and discrimination and called on the government to apologize for its role in the transatlantic slave trade and slavery in former colonies, as well as adopt legislation to address the intergenerational impact of these practices. In Russia, the Committee was most concerned with human rights conflicts from ongoing armed conflicts in Ukraine.
