Commission on Diversity in the North

The Commission on Diversity in the North is a newly founded working group whose mission is to facilitate dialogue and knowledge transfers between academia, local government and civil society in the North of England. The Commission examines the challenges that the Brexit vote and the ongoing negotiations on leaving the European Union bring to diverse communities in the North of England.

The Honorary Chair of the commission is Professor Lord Bhikhu Parekh, who was Deputy and Acting Chair of the Commission for Racial Equality, and Chair of the Runnymede Trust Commission for the Future of Multi-Ethnic Britain, whose report was published in 2000 (often referred to as the Parekh Report).
