February 2009 marked ten years since the publication of Stephen Lawrence report. This was a significant landmark in the history of race in Britain, and how the public sector deals with issues of equality.

Given the significance of this anniversary, the Commission held a major event Monday 19 January 2009 where our chair, Trevor Phillips delivered a keynote lecture.
