About the book:
Less than three months before he was assassinated, Malcolm X spoke at The Oxford Union—the most prestigious student debating organization in the United Kingdom, which regularly welcomed heads of state and stars of screen and served as the training ground for the politically ambitious offspring of Britain’s “better classes”. Malcolm X, by contrast, was the global icon of race militancy. For many, he personified revolution and danger. Marking the fiftieth anniversary of the debate, this book brings to life the dramatic events surrounding the visit, showing why Oxford invited Malcolm X, why he accepted, and the effect of the visit on Malcolm X and British students.

8th Annual summer school on Black Europe

Now accepting applications for Black Europe Summer School Program 2015

June 22 – July 3, 2015, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

black europe copy 8th Annual summer school on Black Europe

Now in its 8th year, the overall goal of this intensive two-week course is to examine the contemporary circumstances of the African Diaspora in Europe. We will focus on the historical and colonial legacies of European countries to discuss the origins of Black Europe and investigate the impact of these legacies on policies and legislation today.

This course addresses the dimensions of race and ethnic relations that are unique to Europe; examining the ways in which conceptions of the “other” are institutionalized and reproduced; the rise of xenophobia in various EU countries; issues such as global racisms, everyday racism, and epistemic racism; the legal definitions and discourse surrounding the conceptualized “other”; and examining the ways in which each country has dealt with issues of race and national identity. Issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality are central analytics, and scholars from the social sciences and humanities and NGOs working against racism and xenophobia in Europe are encouraged to apply.

Applications due February 1, 2015.

aMASE: advancing Migrant Access to health Services in Europe

180x150 EN say tree aMASE: advancing Migrant Access to health Services in Europe

Research shows that migrants are often very healthy when they first move to a country, but then become more vulnerable to certain health conditions. For some it’s because certain illnesses are more common in their home country, for others it’s because illnesses are related to specific behaviours or attitudes, or change in environment. Another reason could be that some people find it hard to use healthcare services in their new home.

aMASE: advancing Migrant Access to health Services in Europe is a European Commission funded community study. It is being led by researchers from University College London, UK, and the Institute of Health Carlos III, Spain. In a nutshell, aMASE allows migrants to feedback about their experiences of healthcare systems across Europe so that healthcare providers can plan better, more appropriate services for ALL people living in Europe.  The survey is strictly anonymous and confidential, and takes about 15 minutes to complete. Participants have to be aged 18+ and living outside their country of birth.

The survey is available in 14 languages.
