From 1965 – 2065: The Evolution of Anti-Racial Discrimination Law
Kindly supported by ParliREACH, Parliament's Workplace Equality Network for increasing awareness and appreciation of race, ethnicity and cultural heritage issues in Parliament.
December 2015 marks fifty years since the first anti-racial discrimination law was passed in the UK. Come to a free evening lecture and hear about how anti-racial discrimination legislation has changed society in the UK and abroad.
Join Dr Iyiola Solanke, Senior Lecturer at the School of Law, University of Leeds, as she asks how the 1965 Race Relations Act came into being, and how it has changed law and society in the UK and abroad. Dr Solanke will consider whether it has achieved as much as possible, given the structural limitations inherent in its design, and consider how legal protection from racial discrimination will look in 2065.
