Fostering Good Relations

CSMP hosted a workshop on fostering good relations in February 2013.  This was organised to enable local authority representatives to discuss the requirement, under the Public Sector Equality Duty, for councils to foster good relations and publish outcomes and report their progress in this regard.

The workshop involved small group and panel discussions as well as presentations from three invited speakers.  The slides from the three presentations are provided below:

Demystifying the Concept of Good Relations (Prof Stephen Reicher, University of St Andrews)
Setting Equality Outcomes, Reporting Progress and the Role of EHRC (Chris Oswald, EHRC)
Good Relations and the Role of Local Authorities (Nick Croft, City of Edinburgh Council)

A report outlining the learning from the day was also prepared and circulated to all councils.  It can be downloaded by clicking here.
