Debate: The Race Relations Act @ 50
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
As soon as a future date is confirmed we will add details to the 'Events' section.
On the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the Race Relations Act, this event at the Leeds University School of Law will consider its impact and look ahead to the next 50 years.
The panel, chaired by Dr Iyiola Solanke, will feature speakers, such as Dr Kehinde Andrews and Shirley Henry, drawn from across the political spectrum. Each speaker will give their reflections on the Act as well as their vision for race relations in the UK in the future and the role that legal regulation of racial discrimination will play.
2015 offers a unique moment to reflect on how legislation can prevent and remedy racial discrimination, as well as considering what may need to be done to continue this work successfully until 2065.
Presented in partnership with The University of Leeds.
This Festival of Freedoms event aligns with the Race Relations Act banner from ‘The Beginnings of that Freedome' exhibition in Westminster Hall.
This event will be followed by a reception in the atrium of the Liberty Building.
Further details will appear here in due course.
