Here is our United Nations proposal for action to recognise the structural legacies of colonialism that we submitted to The UN Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent (WGEPAD) that was successfully incorporated into their draft recommendations, which will be published by the Human Rights Council in Geneva, later this year.

Our proposal can be read here.
