The persistence of racial disadvantage in higher education: a UK case study

Pilkington, A. (2016) The persistence of racial disadvantage in higher education: a UK case study. Invited Presentation presented to: The Higher Education Conference, Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, 13-15 July 2016. (Unpublished)

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Invited Presentation)
Abstract: This presentation surveys the last two decades to examine how the UK higher education sector in general and one university in particular has addressed race. I shall argue that the salience of race equality which rose dramatically in the aftermath of the publication of a major report in 1999 has not been sustained. The result is the failure of the higher education sector in the last twenty years to transform the experience of Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) staff and students.
