British Academy hosts two day conference on equality and human rights
12 Feb 2015
The British Academy today hosts a two-day conference on equality and human rights with The Equality and Diversity Forum and EDF Research Network.
‘Beyond 2015’ will explore and discuss how to reduce inequality by working more effectively across sectors and disciplines. Beginning by mapping the UK’s progress on equality, human rights and social justice since 2010, the conference will look beyond the next election to identify the possibilities for the decade ahead. The goal is to bring together decision makers, researchers, service providers and advocates to find new ways of improving outcomes through knowledge-sharing and co-operation. Speakers include Professor Anthony Heath FBA and Sir John Hills FBA.
‘Beyond 2015’ is hosted by the British Academy and funded by the Nuffield Foundation. The project consists of a two-day conference in London in February 2015, a publication and online resources. The conference brings together expert speakers and innovative thinking from research, NGO and policy circles around the UK.
