Anti-Discrimination Policy:
Making a Difference
Thursday, November 21 - Saturday, November 23, 2002
With affirmative action now under siege in the U.S. and anti-discrimination initiatives moving up the agenda
in France, this international conference brings together leading researchers from both sides of the Atlantic to
engage in a comparative dialogue on the most effective means of combating racial and ethnic discrimination.
Topics include housing, employment, education, policing, the definition and use of ethnic categories, national,
sub-national and supra-national initiatives, and personal versus institutional anti-racist strategies.
