As part of our effort to support an infrastructure of collaboration between researchers, lawyers and advocates, we believe in the importance for The Civil Rights Project to conduct conferences, briefings and trainings.
Many of our conferences are envisioned to foster debate and draw experts from several distinct areas, commissioned for further research by The Civil Rights Project.
Upcoming and Recent Events
- Segregation, Immigration, and Educational Inequality: A Multinational Examination of New Research (University of Ghent, Ghent Belgium , from Sep 21, 2013 08:00 AM to Sep 22, 2013 05:00 PM)
- The Civil Rights Project, University of Ghent and Université Libre de Bruxelles are cosponsoring a research conference next fall – September 21 and 22, 2013 -- on issues of segregation and inequality in European and North American schools, focusing on the relationship with immigration and various forms of diversity and social cleavage. This conference aims to bring together new research addressing these themes as well as examining explicitly comparative work using the best available data.

- State Policy Briefing: The CSU Crisis and California's Future (UC Center-Sacramento, from Jun 15, 2011 01:30 PM to Jun 15, 2011 03:00 PM)
- At this event, leading scholars present research findings on the impact of fiscal cutbacks on opportunity for higher education in the California State University system. CSUs educate a greater number of Latino and African American students, enroll a much larger undergraduate student body than the University of California system overall, and many CSU students are first-generation college students struggling to get an education in difficult times. Representatives from the Legislative Analyst’s Office, California Senate, and Postsecondary Education Commission respond to the researchers and open the discussion to attendees.
