Event description

Description

CoDE are holding a major two-day conference in Manchester to discuss the outcomes of its first four years of work. The ambitious intention of the conference is to bring a wide range of constituencies into dialogue – the public, policy makers, NGOs, politicians, the media and academics – around our emerging findings on the patterning and drivers of ethnic inequalities across a range of domains.

Our plenary speakers include Rob Berkeley, BBC and formerly Runnymede Trust, Professor Claire Alexander, the University of Manchester, Professor Kalwant Bhopal, University of Birmingham, and Ruth Ibegbuna, Founder and CEO of RECLAIM Project

the conference will consist of a mix of activities:

  • Plenary presentations from high profile figures in the field;
  • Themed sessions summarising the key findings and policy implications of our research (organised around topics such as Employment and education, Migration, place and community, Health and wellbeing, Racisms, Politics and political representation);
  • Workshops to discuss and debate the state of race/ethnicity in the UK in the light of our research;
  • Question panel style discussions, with panels comprised of experts from a range of fields;
  • Interactive exhibitions;
  • Spoken word and graphic artists.

Full Conference Programme

* Please note the venue is fully accessible, and there will be a designated prayer space. Should you have any other specific requirements, accessibility needs or other specific requests please email code@manchester.ac.uk by Friday 16 June.

Organiser CoDE (Centre on the Dynamics of Ethnicity)

Organiser of Documenting, understanding, and addressing ethnic inequalities

CoDE is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and is based at the University of Manchester. In the context of ongoing policy concern and academic debate around issues of ethnic diversity, integration, immigration and inequality, the core agenda of CoDE is to transform our understanding of the contemporary patterning of ethnic inequalities, to investigate how this relates to the ways in which ethnic identities are perceived, acted upon and experienced, and to provide the knowledge and tools to enhance policy and public capacity to engage in this area.
