Activity summary:

EAFORD is an independent, non-governmental organisation dedicated to upholding and promoting the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination which was adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1963 and ratified into law in January 1965.
As an international human rights organisation, EAFORD’s philosophy and activities are grounded in the principle of equality in dignity and rights for people and individuals and, as a practical measure toward this end, calls for return to the rule of international law. In particular, the objectives and principles espoused by EAFORD are those agreed upon through international consensus and articulated through the United Nations in the corpus of international law.
