Evidence-based interventions to overcome structural racism

Our Work

Authoritative, evidence-based interventions to overcome racial inequality. 

Our work

Proudly independent, for over 50 years Runnymede’s esteemed research, analysis and policy development has provided the evidence to challenge racial injustice.

From broadening the curriculum to  exposing the Windrush scandal, our work is rooted in challenging structural racism and its impact on our communities. Our authoritative research equips decision makers, practitioners and citizens with the knowledge and tools to deliver genuine progress towards racial justice in Britain.
