Hide / Show Abstract

In 1990, the United Nations continued to promote and protect human rights and fundamental freedoms world wide, and dealt with matters related to racial and other forms of discrimination-including religious intolerance, HIV/ AIDS-related intolerance and measures against nazism—self-determination of peoples, electoral processes, administration of justice, prisoners, torture, executions, hostage-taking, genocide and mass exoduses. Other important areas of concern were freedom of speech, extreme poverty, problems of minorities, including indigenous peoples, and the rights of children, youth and women.
