Main Content

A conference exploring the complex interplay between race and socio-economic class and the unique challenges this interaction presents for policy makers. Participants from a wide array of legal fields will critically reflect on the ways in which racism has contributed to socio-economic disadvantage and conversely the ways in which socio-economic disadvantage has spurred on racism. In addition, participants will consider the role of the law in reinforcing these dynamics, and suggest, where appropriate, creative legal interventions that are likely to produce better future outcomes.
