Although more than 170 countries have ratified a UN treaty against racial discrimination, the problem still persists and has taken on some "very insidious contemporary forms."

That's according to the chair of the committee that monitors implementation of the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination, adopted in 1965.

Anastacia Crickley was in New York recently to participate in a UN General Assembly debate on racial profiling and incitement to hatred, including in the context of migration.

She spoke to Dianne Penn afterwards.
