Dumic, Mirela

The current debate about multiculturalism in the aftermath of '7/7' needs to be set in its historical context. A key aspect of this history is the move from anti-racist debates and policies towards an emphasis on identity politics and 'faith communities'. Some have encouraged this development and seek to defend it in a more general defence of multiculturalism. Others doubt its capacity to provide long term solutions, especially when 'faith communities' are seen as the main vehicle of identity politics. We want to focus not only Britain, but also on similar developments across Europe generally, and other parts of the globe.

The aim of this conference is to debate this history and seek new avenues by bringing together different generations from inside and outside universities so that we can learn from each other's experience and views.
