Runnymede and other UK race equality organisations are going to Geneva on 21 August 2011 ahead of the UK Government’s examination by the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on 23 and 24 August. The Committee will be assessing the government’s policies on tackling racism and inequalities in the UK’s BME communities, and race organisations will be there to make sure the most important issues are brought to the table.
Runnymede and other race equality organisations produced a report in June 2011 which was submitted to the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) ahead of its examination of the UK Government later this month. The report highlights the key challenges faced by ethnic minorities in the UK and where the Government could be doing more to tackle inequalities in BME communities.
