Joint international conference with the Runnymede Trust
Living Together Civic, Political and Cultural Engagement among Migrants, Minorities and National Populations: Multidisciplinary Perspectives
29 – 30 June 2010, University of Surrey
This conference aims to take stock of the different forms of civic, political and cultural engagement which currently exist, and investigate the factors and processes which are driving them, and the role of public policy in the engagement of women, migrants, minorities and national populations. A special feature of the conference this year will be an event organised by the Runnymede Trust, which will consider where Britain stands 10 years after the Parekh Report on the future of multi-ethnic Britain and 25 years after the Swann Report.

This conference will range across different academic disciplines and explore links between academic knowledge, policy, practice and the media. The format will consist of keynote addresses, parallel paper sessions, convened symposia, a poster session and a panel debate organised by the Runnymede Trust.
