‘Duty, Duty, Duty’: Bridging Race Equality, Community Cohesion and Well-Being in Schools, Education conference

This conference, held at the Institute of Education in partnership with The Centre for Rights, Equalities and Social Justice (CRESJ), was a great success.

It offered an opportunity for teachers, practitioners and policy-makers from schools, local authorities, voluntary and community organisations to discuss ideas and practice on the role of schools in promoting race equality, community cohesion and well-being. The conference highlighted the policies and initiatives that support the implementation of these duties and allowed for the sharing of good practice to ensure schools and services and agencies working to support children and young people challenge discrimination and promote inclusion across all school life.

The success of this event was a result of the engaging and informative debates and presentations delivered by all of the invited presenters and panel-members.

A full conference report highlighting the key themes, questions and challenges arising from the conference will published in the Runnymede Trust's March 2009 Bulletin.
