CTPSR's Professor Harris Beider and Kusminder Chahal with Dr Stacy Anne Harwood from the Department of Urban & Regional Planning at the University of Illinois have published their latest report.
This report presents an analysis of white working-class communities’ perspectives on belonging, change, identity, and immigration. Recent studies about the white working class focus on national politics, religion, and immigration; this study tells a national story from a grassroots perspective with an eye toward the prospects for cross-racial coalition building between working-class white communities and communities of color. The project’s goals were to increase understanding about white working-class communities in America, to disrupt the negative narrative about the white working class by contextualizing its issues and challenges, and to put forward practical ideas for cros-sracial coalition building.

In July 2015, a legal duty came into force requiring that ‘specified authorities’, including schools and further education colleges, show ‘due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism’ – popularly referred to as the ‘Prevent duty’.
The report ‘What the Prevent duty means for schools and colleges in England: An analysis of educationalists’ experiences’, published 2 years after the introduction of the Prevent duty, seeks to get beyond the polarised public debate about the duty to explore the experiences of ‘front line’ education professionals.
