Development has always been a priority for the United Nations (UN). #UN75 On June 17, 2020, weeks after the death of George Floyd, the UN Human Rights Council held an urgent debate at the UN headquarters in Geneva on police brutality and systemic racism in the United States. The 47-member-state forum unanimously adopted a resolution brought by African countries, condemning discriminatory and violent policing after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and ordered a report on “systemic racism” against people of African descent in the U.S. The mandate also asks UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet to examine government responses to peaceful protests, including alleged use of excessive force, and deliver findings in a year’s time.
