UK visit of the UN Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent
What an honour to participate in the main symposium of the UK country visit of the United Nations Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent organised by fellow barrister and UN Fellow Priscellia Robinson on Saturday 21st January 2023.
