Runnymede report: Scotland and race equality

The Runnymede Trust published a report ‘Scotland and Race Equality: Directions in Policy and Identity‘ in June 2016.

The report has three main objectives. First, it aims to take stock of existing activities across different sectors of Scottish society: contributors and participants from organisations are asked to tell the story of how they have understood the implications – and where appropriate the delivery – of existing race equality approaches in Scotland.

Second, contributors reflect on the successes of and obstacles affecting the prevailing race equality approaches, from issues of procedure to being able to measure outcomes.

Third, the report identifies gaps in data and other knowledge that might hinder a full and proper account of race equality in Scotland, and highlights what additional evidence is needed to support the development of race equality policy in Scotland.
