This programme will explore the use of this phrase and the impact that the acceptance of this type of language has on society.  It will address prejudice and discrimination in Britain today, with a particular focus on race and faith, and the impact that this has on individuals, groups and communities.

At the end of this programme participants will be able to:

  • Describe the link between stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination giving real life examples of where these exist within our own communities
  • Examine the impact of significant events on levels of discrimination and conflict
  • Identify groups which are particularly affected by these issues
  • Understand how discrimination can create/escalate conflict
  • Discuss the impact (positive and negative) of conflict on individuals and communities
  • Positively challenge attitudes and behaviour which they deem to be inappropriate or unacceptable.
