Both the United Nations General Assembly and the Human Rights Council have adopted strong resolutions to eliminate colonialism. On 10 December 2020 the General Assembly adopted resolution 75/123, declaring the Fourth International Decade for the Eradication of Colonialism. On 8 October 2021, the Human Rights Council passed Resolution 48/7 calling attention to the Negative impact of the legacies of colonialism on the enjoyment of human rights.
This panel discusses the anomaly that, despite declaring such noble intentions, colonialism persists around the globe and very little, if any concrete actions are being taken by the United Nations to free nations in captivity, or to end various forms of deleterious colonial practices.
