The RaCE network has five core aims which underpin its work. These are to:
- provide an open forum for critical, inter/trans/post/cross-disciplinary dialogues about race, class, and ethnicity and their complex intersections.
- challenge discriminatory practices which result from race, class and/or ethnicity through discourse and activism.
- engage in critical dialogues about ‘Whiteness’ and ‘White privilege’;
- convene a series of events which seek to promote and disseminate research, scholarship, and practice on race/class/ethnicity.
- develop collaborative relationships and projects with individuals, groups and/or institutions.
These aims govern its scholarship alongside a commitment to activate research through its responsibility to engage communities of interest in the development of critical praxis.
