CRRF issues call for papers for Directions journal

TORONTO, Dec. 21, 2016 – The Canadian Race Relations Foundations (CRRF) is issuing a call for papers for its academic journal Directions. The upcoming issue will build on key themes that emerged from the CRRF’s 2016 National Conference, titled “Inclusive Canada: 2017 and Beyond.”

The conference, held in October 2016, brought together participants from across Canada to discuss the challenges and promises that lie ahead, as we work towards confronting racism and racial discrimination, while realizing an inclusive Canadian society that is respectful of diversity.

Published in print and online in winter 2017, the eighth issue of Directions, “Inclusive Canada: 2017 and Beyond,” will examine the following topics:

  • The importance of reconciliation
  • Issues in modern policing
  • Systemic racism (in media, education, corporate, governmental, etc.)
  • Newcomer and refugee integration
  • Youth as protagonists of social change
  • Online hate and racism

The public is invited to submit their research papers, editorials, or book reviews here. For more information about research topics, click here.

Issue 7 is currently available in print and online. Click here to read “The Power of Words.”
