| European Parliament election watch on Race Equality

The UK Race and Europe Network (UKREN) is the only national network engaged in a two-way information exchange on race equality between the UK and Europe.

UKREN was established in 1996 by a group of six leading UK anti-racist organisations to raise awareness of the importance of European Union legislation and policy for UK-based organisations working on race equality and discrimination issues.

Today, UKREN is a UK-wide network of 160 predominantly non-governmental organisations interested in combating racism at a local, national or European level.

Since its inception, UKREN has taken a leading role in ensuring that local and national UK organisations are kept informed of the latest European developments in policy, legislation and current affairs in the fields of anti-racism, anti-discrimination, equality, social inclusion, migration, human rights, and religion. 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.

UKREN acts as the UK platform for the European Network Against Racism (ENAR), based in Brussels. The Migrants' Rights Network holds the secretariat of UKREN.
