This book reports on leading edge research on racism in higher education - a matter that has received far less attention in western societies than racism in schools. The book examines the evidence of institutional racism in higher education and prepares for the forthcoming web-based guide to assist institutional change.

The chapters here are drawn from the presentations by leading social science researchers in the field at a conference at the University of Leeds in 2002. The conference made it possible to assess the extent and nature of racism in higher education institutions today, and the structural constraints on change. There are theoretical and philosophical explorations that further understanding, and also accounts of evidence of positive new responses to these issues.

This important book is for managers, academics and teachers in Higher Education, for policy makers, professionals and academics concerned with race equality and for students of the social sciences.

This book reports on cutting-edge research on racism in higher education - a matter that has received far less attention than racism in primary and secondary schools. The result of a project funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England and led by the editors, the book examines the evidence of institutional racism in higher education and prepares for the forthcoming Web-based guide to assist institutional change.
