‘There is no region, no continent and no ideology that has automatically insulated itself from racism’, (January-Bardill 2005). The Centre for Ethnicity and Racism Studies is holding this Conference in order to stimulate debate about the increasing racialisation of the world. The systematic geo-mapping of the racialisation of the planet has not been achieved although we do have increasing theory and evidence which leads us towards this goal. We have a patchy, uneven set of accounts across localities, nations and regions which highlight both the interconnectedness and the variation in forms of racist discourse and in the logics of racial regimes. This conference aims to explore these processes and patterns and work towards a deeper and more coherent understanding of the complexity of global racisms.
