On the 12th & 13th February 2015, the British Academy hosted a two-day conference organised by the Equality & Diversity Forum (EDF) and the EDF Research Network.
The Equality and Diversity Forum and EDF Research Network are starting a discussion about how to reduce inequality by working more effectively across sectors and disciplines. The project begins by mapping the UK’s progress on equality, human rights and social justice since 2010, before looking beyond the next election to identify the possibilities for the decade ahead. The goal was to bring together decision makers, researchers, service providers and advocates to find new ways of improving outcomes through knowledge-sharing and cooperation.
The project conference brought together expert speakers and innovative thinking from research, NGO and policy circles around the UK. An open call for contributions on the project themes has been widely distributed. Submissions will be published with additional material in a post-conference (printed and electronic) collection. An online resource with links to a wider range of contributions, as well as relevant research material, think pieces and debates, will be developed as part of the project.
