Abstract

Differentials in the attainment and retention levels of students and staff from different ethnicities, including researchers highlight disproportionate inequalities as a result of structural discrimination in education and employment. This threatens diversity and inclusion in the Europe 2020 Strategy. E.g. people of African descent remain disproportionately marginalised from senior academic and management posts in British universities.

My doctoral research therefore asserts it is imperative public bodies address human rights violations, promote and protect universal human rights the UK. I will therefore critically analyse interventions for the achievement of sustainable development goals and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. E.g. How can we achieve “more inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities” SDG4 ?
