Racism and bigotry are on the rise in Britain. This round table brings together academics, writers, journalists and activists to discuss how racial prejudice is impacting our communities and how the growing hostility to immigrants and widespread Islamophobia are disrupting community relations and personal lives. Various forms of structural, institutional and community racism and bigotry are becoming more and more visible in Britain and abroad. Political establishments and the media face a difficult challenge tackling these issues, and so do schools and universities. This round table is one attempt to engage directly and openly with some of the controversial issues surrounding bigotry and racism in our communities.
