Addressing the Concept and Evidence of Institutional Racism from an Irish Education Perspective Friday 17th February 2012

The School of Education and ISS21 UCC invite you to a conference and networking event:

‘Racism and Education: Addressing the Concept and Evidence of Institutional Racism from an Irish Perspective’.

The purpose of the conference is to review the research evidence of institutional racism within the Irish education system, and to discuss further priorities for education policy making. We will look at racism in education from multiple angles, ranging from the issue of bullying to the sometimes unintended, unequal consequences of institutional practices. The main focus will be on schooling, but pre-school, further training, 3rd level and other related areas of social and education policy will not be ignored.

The internationally renowned scholar Professor Mairtin Mac an Ghaill of Newman University College, Birmingham, will address the conference.  A space will also be made to dialogue and to build on existing networks on this topic. Please see the attached flyer for further details.
