UKREN AGM and UK launch of ENAR’s shadow report on migration and racism
Thu 4 May 2017, 14:00 – 17:00 BST
We would like to invite you to UKREN’s Annual General Meeting and the UK launch of the European Network Against Racism’s (ENAR) shadow report on migration and racism, on the afternoon of Thursday 4 May in London.
ENAR are about to publish their groundbreaking research on the complex intersection between migration and racism. The report’s author, Ojeaku Nwabuzo, will come from Brussels to present the European-wide findings. This will be supplemented by UKREN’s Alan Anstead, who was one of the two researchers who examined the UK, giving an insight into the political and news media rhetoric that saw a spike in hate crimes around the EU referendum in the UK. And Fizza Qureshi, Director of Migrants Rights Network, will look into the key issues that organisations who support migrants should consider.
UKREN’s AGM is an important one as members need to vote on whether to accept (or not) UKREN’s new constitution as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, and to dissolve (or not) the old UKREN. UKREN will also briefly present its work over the last year and financial accounts, and its Steering Committee members/Trustees.
