Durban Conference 2009
On November 22, 2006, the UN General Assembly (“GA”) adopted a resolution to convene a 2009 follow-up to the World Conference Against Racism. The NGO Forum of the 2001 conference (“Durban Conference”) was used to promote virulent anti-Israel demonization. The follow-up event will yet again take place in Durban. The 2009 conference is intended to focus on implementation of the 2001 resolution, which provided the blue print for the NGO "Durban Strategy." Over the next two years, NGO Monitor will follow NGO involvement with the 2009 Conference and will provide periodic updates on this activity.
