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.
