About multiculturalismforum.org.uk

In 2011, the Social Psychology Section of the British Psychological Society (BPS) organised a conference at the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. The aim was to create a forum for practitioners and academic researchers with an interest in multiculturalism to meet and find out about each other’s work. Following the success of this event, a follow-up conference was hosted by the London School of Economics in 2012. Whereas the first event foregrounded academic research on multiculturalism and how it could be of use to practitioners, the second event put practitioners centre-stage and invited them to introduce their work to the academics. Further information about both workshops is available at http://www.multiculturalismforum.org/workshops.

This internet presence, The Multiculturalism Forum, stems from the idea to offer an online platform for this emerging network of practitioners and academics working in the field of multiculturalism and cultural identity. Sponsored by a knowledge exchange grant from the Department of Psychology, Politics and Sociology at Canterbury Christ Church University (CCCU), supported by the Department of Social Psychology at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), the Migrant Help charity, and the Social Psychology Section of the British Psychological Society (BPS), this web site currently has a focus on social psychology and its relevance to British multiculturalism. However, the global nature of the internet permits us to invite and encourage participation from practitioners and interdisciplinary researchers all over the world.
