Many of our seminars and public events this year will continue as in person or as hybrid (online and in person) events. Please check our website listings and Twitter feed @STICERD_LSE for updates.

Unless otherwise specified, in-person seminars are open to the public.

Those unable to join the seminars in-person are welcome to participate via zoom if the event is hybrid.

About this event

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Black and Minority Ethnic groups have been at the sharp end of the impact of the virus. With higher infection and mortality rates, BME groups have been hit hardest in economically, socially and fatally. In a year where the killing of George Floyd rocked the world and the Black Lives Matter movement gained increasing traction, it is time to ask why government policies are still failing BME groups. How in 2020 can 'race' still be a social determinant of health?
