Event description

Description

In November 2014, CRER held a conference exploring how to improve activity to foster good relations. The resulting report, 'Promoting Good Relations: New Approaches, New Solutions', proved a popular tool. We hosted a follow-up masterclass in March 2015 with Professor Ted Cantle to explore some of the issues in more detail.

This free event will build on our work so far, addressing the challenges and opportunities of fostering good relations. As one of the most challenging requirements of the general equality duty, this will be of particular interest to public sector organisations with legal obligations to include fostering good relations in their approaches to equality.

Topics to be explored include:

  • The potential and pitfalls of using the Scottish Social Attitudes Survey in policy aimed at fostering good race relations (with keynote speaker Professor Sir John Curtice, University of Strathclyde)
  • The importance of directly acknowledging race in the Scottish context (with Professor Nasar Meer, University of Edinburgh)
  • The role of local Integration Plans and Community Cohesion Plans in fostering good race relations in other areas of Britain
  • Fostering good race relations in the community and public sectors, in theory and practice
