more abstract"Why We Reflect On Race & Rights Five Years after 9/11, 2001 Malinda S. Smith and Rita Dhamoon, Co-Coordinators, ARDN, 18 October 2006. The panel discussion was organize in commemoration of two historic events; the fifth anniversary of the United Nations World Conference on Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerances (UN WCAR), that was held in South Africa, August-September 2001; and the events that have come to symbolize September 11th (or 9/11), the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon, in the United States. Five years after both of these events, we thought it was important to bring together critical scholars and activists to reflect upon race and rights, and how they have been shaped both by Durban and 9/11, and the responses (or lack thereof) to them. We organized the panel as part of the critical anti-racism education work undertaken by the Anti-Racism and Decolonization Network.
