The UK Race and Europe Network (UKREN) is a network of local and national organisations across Great Britain and Northern Ireland that work to combat race discrimination within a European context. It does this through sharing information between members and co-ordinating action on race equality issues. It aims to provide policy makers with a UK civil society perspective on European race equality issues and to encourage a positive public debate on race in Europe. Membership is open to organisations in the UK who fight racism and promote race equality. It is free to join.
