The adoption and implementation of the ICERD has been an attempt to expand the rule of law, constraining the sovereignty of individual states. Further action to develop the Convention's potential will require a greater commitment from states parties, individually and collectively, than they have hitherto shown. The UN system for the protection of human rights has been built up on the basis of decisions that were expedient at the time. States are reluctant to rationalize it because they do not wish to be subject to closer oversight.

Keywords:   decision‐taking, human rights, ICERD, implementation, oversight, remedial action, rule of law, sovereignty, states, United Nations
