Racism by country[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

Involved parties[edit]

Articles involved[edit]

Other steps in dispute resolution that have been attempted:[edit]

  • Requested Admin intervention: [1]
  • Request for Comment [2]
  • General discussion on the talk is here [3] - the article was locked after ~10 reverts, so there hasn't been much actual edit warring

Issues to be mediated[edit]

  • Is it original research to discuss discrimination based on ethnicity in an article titled racism if the word racism is not explicitly mentioned in the source? [4] [5]
  • Are Amnesty International, the U.S. Department of State and the United Nations' High Commision on Human Rights reliable sources? [6]
  • Is there an undue focus on Iran, compared with other countries - explicitly the United States? [7]
  • Is it enough that information be attributable to numerous sources, or does it need to be true? [8]

Additional issues to be mediated[edit]

  • Additional issue 1
  • Additional issue 2

Decision of the Mediation Committee[edit]

A member of the Mediation Committee will indicate acceptance/rejection/other relevant notes in this section. Non-mediators should not edit this section.

Accept. As a result of the open-nature of the party list (see prior version), anyone else who becomes a 'party' to this conflict is asked to be directed to the Mediation page so they can take part.
For the Mediation Committee, Daniel 07:39, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
Closing notes: It seems that no mediator on the Committee has the time nor the willingness to take this case, for whatever reason (I'm recused, for the record). Although I would probably have let this wait, it is apparent from the talk page that the initial flurry of dispute discussion has totally evaporated. Given there have also been no edits to the article, I am closing this as an inactive dispute, which has possibly been resolved. Daniel 12:14, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
