A review of key legal-standards, including jurisprudence and commentaries, from the UN human rights system on the legal prohibition of ethnic profiling.

This digest includes standards from the ICCPR, CERD and CRC, decisions of the Human Rights Committee and CERD, and recommendations from the Special Procedures and the Universal Periodic Review.

Produced by lawyers at the Open Society Justice Initiative, it seeks to support a wide audience, including litigators, non-discrimination advocates and public authorities, in accessing UN human rights standards and recommendations and applying these in remedying or preventing ethnic profiling practices.
