Keith hosts the Runnymede Trust’s final Riot Roundtable

Posted on December 5th, 2011 in National

Keith hosted the Runnymede Trust’s final Riot Roundtable. The roundtable was attended by stakeholders including community members and school children.

The Riot Roundtables is a project bringing key local decision-makers, professionals, young people and members of the community together to find out what happened during the riots and what can be done to prevent it happening again. Runnymede is keen to find out if race played a role in the riots, and if race will play a role in designing policy responses. The findings from the roundtables will feed into the current Home Affairs Committee’s inquiry into the riots.
