In the Human Rights Council, the discussion revolved mostly on discrimination, especially on xenophobia and its other forms of manifestation. After strong debates on xenophobia, the topic moved towards the new fear that is tearing the world apart, Islamophobia!
One of the ideas that they all agreed upon was that the phenomenon is becoming more visible around the world and its affecting even civilians and innocent people. The Danish delegation proposed to reflect more on the educational system, proposal that launched a series of debates and motions, all centered on finding adequate solutions and at the same time promoting a more accurate image of the Muslim world.
After a session of motions and discussions in which subjects like: reviewing international treaties, creating awareness, governmental programs, cultural projects were debated, the atmosphere became a little bit agitated. It was the proposal of Nigeria to start making a draft resolution with real proper solutions that should come after an Unmoderated Caucus in which they could really communicate all their ideas and come to a consensus.
Realizing that the subject is a delicate one, mostly because of the presence of countries that have an Islamic population, the delegations tried to align to three main ideas that could really provide some real perspective on the matter: collaboration, dissipating the feeling of fear that is present both in the Muslim and European population.
After agreeing on some final ideas, the delegates went home confident that during the next days some new and durable approaches will be created.
