IRR News develops new ‘learning the lessons’ workshops


Written by: IRR News Team

Practical workshops, learning from past struggles against racism, are being organised by the Institute of Race Relations (IRR) for newly arrived refugee/asylum seeker and migrant groups.

Because of the success of the conference and a series of seminars held in 2006 and demand from new user groups, the IRR has received funding to run a series of practical workshops for members of asylum seeker/refugee and newly arrived migrant groups in London to exchange views and learn from the experiences and successes of previous campaigns and challenges against racism which have been mounted by BME groups over time.

On Friday 23 November, the first workshop will be held on asylum seekers, self-harm and deaths in custody, to be followed by a second workshop on Friday 7 December on tackling racial violence. Further workshops in 2008 will look at the impact of anti-terror laws, combating racism in the media and problems among alienated and excluded young people.

To book a place on either workshop call 020 7837 0041 and speak to Harmit or email:
