    December 2021 will mark the 20th anniversary of the International Law Commission's Articles on the Responsibility of States for Internationally Wrongful Acts. In light of the current focus on and discussion around issues of racism, this panel will consider whether racism in state-sponsored services and institutions (e.g., lack of healthcare access leading to COVID-19 deaths among minority communities, slower vaccine distribution in majority non-white countries, the international response to white nationalist movements, etc.) is an international wrongful act and whether states have responsibilities to combat the underlying causes and effects of racism under international law, including under the ILC Articles.
