The 1990 Trust Response to The Equalities Review Interim Report

Last year, Commission for Racial Equality (CRE) chairman Trevor Phillips was asked by the government to lead a wide-ranging review into public policy and anti-discrimination laws. This was called the Equalities Review. It is expected to influence the design of a new single equalities law to underpin the Commission for Equality and Human Rights (CEHR) – a super-body which will come into force next year. This is the response of the 1990 Trust to that Equalities Review.

Flush the academic racism in Blunkett’s office down the pan

Supporting Victims of Racist Abuse and Violence

This document examines the meanings of racist abuse and violence for those experiencing it; the reasons why victims may be reluctant to report such incidents to the police and other agencies; and the overwhelming evidence that even when they do report, the likelihood of this resulting in prosecution of the perpetrators is extremely small. It explores ways in which this situation must and can change and how victims might be better helped, supported and empowered.
