Seminar: Racial Equality and Youth Work in Scotland

Date: Monday 27th February
Time: 9.30am – 1.00pm
Venue: Sir Alwyn Williams Building

The University of Edinburgh, in partnership with the University of Glasgow and YouthLink Scotland, is offering a free face-to-face seminar focusing on issues of race equality and youth work in Scotland. Drawing on research from the University of Edinburgh and the University of Glasgow on black, minority ethnic, migrant and refugee young people in Scotland, the seminar will discuss how issues such as everyday racism and discrimination, misrecognition, multiple disadvantage, and undervaluing linguistic diversity impact upon young people. We will then reflect on these themes in relation to youth work practice, and discuss how youth work managers and practitioners can be supported to develop strategies for addressing racism, discrimination and disadvantage.
