ICARE for Social Justice

Summer Summit Conference 2022 (#ICARE4Justice)

July 7th-13th · Amsterdam & The Hague, Netherlands

The Intersectional and Comparative Advancement of Racial Equity for Social Justice

The purpose of the Global Summer Summit is to bring together a group of transnational critical scholar-practitioners to analyze, assess and design important considerations for establishing a global strategy and framework for advancing equity for racially and ethnically minoritized communities in education research, praxis and policy. Participants in the summit will have the opportunity to share best practices with each other as they present their diversity and inclusion research related to the promotion of access and equity for racially and ethnically minoritized communities in higher education. Participants will also have the opportunity to cultivate global frameworks centered on racial equity.

The overall plan is for this summit to result in several conference deliverables to disseminate the global framework cultivated including a podcast series, a white paper outlining the framework, a transnational grant, symposia panels, and a special research journal issue. The Intersectional and Comparative Advancement of Racial Equity for Social Justice is a program designed to advance graduate students, faculty, policy makers and community organizers interested in global issues related to racial equity, intersectionality, social justice, decoloniality and anti-colonialism.
