No Problem Here? UN Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

No Problem Here: Understanding Racism in Scotland

Wed 21 March 2018

16:00 – 18:30 GMT

Join CRER to mark the UN Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination with an informative and interactive event on understanding racism in Scotland today.

CRER contributed two chapters to the forthcoming book No Problem Here: Racism in Scotland.  Co-editor Maureen McBride will provide her perspective on this important new publication, followed by an input from CRER’s Carol Young on her chapter (Changing the Race Equality Paradigm in Scotland’s Public Sector). Glasgow City Council Equality Convenor Cllr. Jen Layden will also provide an input.

We also hope to screen a live debate on race equality from the Scottish Parliament (dependent on scheduling of parliamentary business).

The event will end with an interactive discussion on how we can better understand and challenge racism in Scotland.
