Abstract: Let $ k$ be a field, and let $ \Omega $ be a universal domain over $ k$. Let $ f:X \rightarrow S$ be a dominant morphism defined over $ k$ from a smooth projective variety $ X$ to a smooth projective variety $ S$ of dimension $ \leq 2$ such that the general fibre of $ f_\Omega $ has trivial Chow group of zero-cycles. For example, $ X$ could be the total space of a two-dimensional family of varieties whose general member is rationally connected. Suppose that $ X$ has dimension $ \leq 4$. Then we prove that $ X$ has a self-dual Murre decomposition, i.e., that $ X$ has a self-dual Chow-Künneth decomposition which satisfies Murre's conjectures (B) and (D). Moreover, we prove that the motivic Lefschetz conjecture holds for $ X$ and hence so does the Lefschetz standard conjecture. We also give new examples of $ 3$-folds of general type which are Kimura finite dimensional, new examples of $ 4$-folds of general type having a self-dual Murre decomposition, as well as new examples of varieties with finite degree three unramified cohomology.
