The Equality and Human Rights Commission has commissioned an external research team drawn from experts in a number of different institutions to carry out an independent study entitled "Caste in Britain".

The project, which will conclude in early 2014, involves a detailed review of the law and caste, together with two separate invitation-only academic and stakeholder events. The project reports will inform the future work of the EHRC in this area and feed into the proposed formal consultation on caste legislation that the Government Equalities Office will undertake in Spring 2014.

The research team is led by Dr Meena Dhanda of the University of Wolverhampton.

For further information about this project, please contact the EHRC Research Manager, Dr David Perfect
