In November 2020, the Runnymede Trust submitted evidence on behalf of the Coalition of Race Equality Organisations (CORE) to the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities (CRED).
CORE brings together many of the UK's leading Black and minority ethnic voluntary and community organisations to challenge institutional racism. Members include the Runnymede Trust, Race on the Agenda and Operation Black Vote.
In the submission, CORE responded to the following questions:
- What do you consider to be the main causes of racial and ethnic disparities in the UK, and why?
- Can you suggest other ways in which racial and ethnic disparities in the UK could be addressed? In particular, is there evidence of where specific initiatives or interventions have resulted in positive outcomes? Are there any measures which have been counterproductive and why?
