U.K.: Secularism, racism and the politics of belonging

Wednesday 4 April 2012, by siawi3

Edited by Nira Yuval-Davis and Philip Marfleet

This publication is a collection of papers that were presented at conferences in 2010 and 2011 co-organized by the Runnymede Trust and CMRB - the Centre for Research on Migration, Refugees and Belonging at the University of East London. The contributors address issues of migration, racism and religion.
They come from different ethnic, national and religious perspectives: some work as part of religious institutions, some in NGOs, some in academia. They do not always agree on the issues under debate – but all share a strong commitment to social justice, against racism and sexism and in support of migrants who have come to live in Britain. The publication contains papers in sections on: Historical perspectives; Secularism, religion and social cohesion; The gendered debate on secularism; and Faith communities and anti-racism.
