CoDE to hold a major two-day conference in Manchester

3 April 2017

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 their emerging findings on the patterning and drivers of ethnic inequalities across a range of domains.

Plenary speakers include Rob Berkeley, BBC and formerly Runnymede Trust, Professor Claire Alexander, The University of Manchester, and Professor Kalwant Bhopal, University of Birmingham.

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.

Registration for the free event is open now.  Further details are available for the CoDE website.

The Centre on Dynamics of Ethnicity will announce further information about the conference soon.
