The United Nations (UN) will submit Ecuador, starting tomorrow and for two days, to an examination to assess the country’s policies against racial discrimination.
The Ecuadorian government sent a report on advance to the UN detailing the legal and practical efforts made in the last decade to counter racial discrimination, but recognizing that more efforts to face major challenges, are still to be made.
Among them, the need for “major achievements” in the administration of justice in cases related to racism or xenophobia, and further promote of “a culture of respect for diversity”, are mentioned.
The Ecuadorian delegation to participate in this evaluation will be led by Heritage Minister, Maria Fernanda Espinosa. (MZ)
