Our research, evaluation, knowledge exchange and teaching is underpinned by principles that act as the foundation on which we conduct ourselves and our work. Some of these principles are presented in detail on this page alongside other information that is relevant to the ways we work.
Race Equality Statement
The Centre thought it important to have a Race Equality Statement relating to the research, evaluation and knowledge exchange work undertaken in the Centre as well as teaching, supervision, and other activity. The statement places ‘anti-racism’ as an aim rather than a met objective. Racism acts through structures and institutions as well as individuals. Even when all individuals in an institution are not consciously racially prejudiced, systems, policies and processes can result in segregation, marginalisation, and discrimination. Staff felt that the statement needed to acknowledge this. Given that this was a race equality statement, staff felt that racism needed to be clearly foregrounded rather than placed alongside other dimensions of inequity. However, we also wanted to include an acknowledgement of how racism intersects with other dimensions of inequity.
