This course provides learners with knowledge of institutional racism in Britain in three key areas. First, the course will provide a historical understanding of the development of institutional racism in Britain.
Secondly, the course will demonstrate how institutional racism is identified and evidenced.
Thirdly, the programme will look at the development of organisations and movements which challenge institutional racism in Britain the 20th and 21st centuries.
Who is the course for?
This course is for students and researchers with an interest in race, inequalities and social change. It is also for policy-makers and practitioners working on issues relating to racism or with groups of people effected by institutional racism.
This is an engaging three day course covering the history, theory and evidence as well as resistance to institutional racism in Britain.
The first day will examine the history of British institutions, both on the British mainland and in the colonies. This will enable learners to better understand the historical roots of British racism.
The second day of the course will examine the different definitions of racism and institutional racism, to improve our conceptual understanding of the topic. This second day will also be empirical, with an examination of how institutional racism can be found in 21st century Britain in areas including criminal justice, the media and education.
The third day of the programme will focus on resistance. We will look at how Britain’s Black Power movement challenged racist institutions, how the Stephen Lawrence Campaign made institutional racism a commonly used term, and how recent movements like Black Lives Matter are pushing for alternatives to existing institutions in Britain.
The benefits of this course are threefold:
- Those working with people effected by institutional racism (e.g. colleagues, service users, customers or students) have an obligation to better understand these issues in order to work towards an anti-racist place of study, work or social life.
- No institution in Britain is free from racism, and working with and interacting with these institutions can be improved by understanding the racism they reproduce.
- Racism shapes knowledge production in Britain, and it is therefore vital that students, teachers and researchers have a strong understanding of institutional racism and how it can be challenged.
