Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia, and Related Intolerance in Education: The Case of Adolescent Girls in Tanzania

A report on the situation of education and discrimination against adolescent girls in Tanzania, prepared for the UN Durban Review of 2009. The Durban Declaration and Programme of Action, adopted by consensus at the 2001 World Conference against Racism in Durban, South Africa, made key recommendations in the sphere of education.

Seven years later, these recommendations remain largely unattended. Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance are still endemic to the education system in many contexts, leading to severe inequalities in access and retention of schooling, and to the perseverance of intra–school processes that directly violate the principles of human rights and dignity.
