Appeal to include caste discrimination to EU agenda

We urged the high representative Mogherini to take caste discrimination to the agenda of EU foreign policy.

“Caste discrimination affects as many as 260 million people and causes unimaginable suffering. We are deeply concerned with the serious human rights violations and persistent development challenges linked to one of the most extreme, cruel and dehumanising forms of discrimination in the world.  We are convinced that the EU could and should do a lot more to address caste discrimination in words as well as in action, and we urge the high representative to be at the forefront of EU efforts to eradicate it”.
