Centre for Research into Equality, Diversity and Inclusion seminar Tackling belief-related harrassment
This Centre for Research, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (CREDI) seminar will be led by Professor Paul Weller, on the topic ‘Uncovering and tackling religion- or belief-related harassment: lessons from an office for students' research and intervention project'.
The presentation will discuss a Coventry University project led by Professor Weller, titled ‘Tackling religion-based hate crime on the multi-faith campus'.
The project aimed to:
* better support students in understanding what religion-based hate crime is and encourage them to report and receive support
* strengthen the existing reporting and case management mechanism to ensure it addresses religion-based hate crime affecting students
* provide an exemplar for the HE sector via partnership with, and knowledge sharing through, national organisations working on HE equality policy (ECU) and with Church of England chaplains.
All staff and students are welcome to attend.
