The Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance visited the United Kingdom from 30 April to 11 May.

As part of our commitment to universal human rights and the rules-based international system, the United Kingdom offers a standing invitation to all UN Special Rapporteurs to review the situation in the United Kingdom relating to their mandates, and encourages other UN Member States to do the same. The Government will respond to the Special Rapporteur’s country visit findings, conclusions and recommendations when these are presented to the Human Rights Council in June 2019.
