Island at UN Racial Discrimination Meeting 11 August 2003

THE Isle of Man has been represented in Geneva this week at a meeting of the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

Appearing before the committee on behalf of the Island was Jon Callister, Corporate Planning and Operations Manager in the Chief Secretary's Office, deputising for the Chief Secretary. Mr Callister was available to answer questions on the Isle of Man's most recent report to the committee submitted last year.

The Isle of Man is covered by the UN Convention for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination and like other countries, including the United Kingdom, updates the committee on a regular basis on its progress in meeting the convention requirements.

The Isle of Man's report to the committee is submitted along with that of the UK and representatives from both countries are subsequently asked to meet with the committee to answer questions and clarify any points arising.
