Chapter Summary

Joseph Voyame has fought for justice and against the infringement of human rights in many fora and on many fronts. Racism is one of the most odious evils permeating human societies. The injustice of racism appears in many guises. It may be endorsed by public authorities which apply the law in a discriminatory way, or it may even be entrenched in the law itself. Or it surfaces in relations between citizens, when members of a certain ethnicity, religion or culture are victims of discrimination. When comparing the jurisprudence of the Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights, it has to be kept in mind that the latter holds a position different from its American counterpart. The discussion over a community-level approach to combating racism, and the eventual outcome, highlighted the different legal traditions of member States.
