Greetings from the UNOG Library!
This guide provides links to the most relevant UN documents (resolutions, reports, declarations, treaties) on people of African descent, a group of specific interest to the United Nations because of the discrimination it continues to suffer even after the end of the historic slave trade.
It also highlights the collections of the UNOG Library on the topic - both print and online resources (books, articles, journals, and databases). In addition, key websites have been selected by your UNOG librarians to help you to keep up-to-date on this subject.
