Keynote lecture

Black and minority ethnic (BME) experiences in higher education: policy making, social justice and white privilege.

This lecture will examine recent statistics on the representation of BME staff and students in higher education and explore how processes of racism, exclusion and marginalisation continue to disadvantage BME groups. It will use recent empirical research to suggest ways forward for the inclusion of BME groups focusing on issues of equity and social justice. The lecture will also discuss how white privilege works to disadvantage those from BME backgrounds and will explore how universities can develop good practice for the inclusion of BME groups in higher education.
