This publication is a collection of papers that were presented at conferences in 2010 and 2011, co-organised by the Runnymede Trust and the Centre for Research on Migration, Refugees and Belonging (CMRB) at the University of East London.

The contributors addressed issues of migration, racism and religion. They came from different ethnic, national and religious perspectives; they did not always agree on the issues under debate‚ but all shared a strong commitment to social justice, against racism and sexism and in support of migrants who have come to live in Britain. In the report, there are chapters on historical perspectives, secularism, religion and social cohesion, the gendered debate on secularism; and faith communities and anti-racism.
