The World Conference against Racism (WCAR) are international events organised by the UNESCO to struggle against racism ideologies and behaviours. Twenty-seven conferences have been held so far, in 1978, 1983, 2001 and 2009. Founded after World War II and The Holocaust as a dependent body of the United Nations, the UNESCO started as soon as its creation to promote scientific studies concerning ethnic groups and their diffusion in the public opinion to dispel pseudo-scientific rationalizations of racism. One of its first published work was The Race Question in 1950, signed by various internationally renowned scholars.
