Advanced research on global racisms, from antisemitism to Romaphobia.
The ICR is a multi-disciplinary research centre. We conduct international research and consultancy, organise academic meetings on new global challenges, and provide workshops for civil society. The work of the ICR is supported by partnerships in Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands, along with experts in Australia, North America, and across the UK.
Edge Hill’s history of antiracism and race relations scholarship began in the 1960s under the leadership of Principal PKC Millins. As late as the early 1990s, the College remained the only provider of an undergraduate degree in the UK in race and ethnic relations.
Each academic year, the ICR hosts its flagship PKC Millins Lecture. Millins laureates are invited in recognition of their innovation in the study of global racisms.
