This e-congress was for researchers, students, people involved in policy work, people who are involved with social work, the community, and people who are interested in identities. The focus of the e-congress was to bring together people who study social identities and to add to the debates around the notion that some ethnic, religious, national and other social identities may be mutually exclusive. We aim to support people in thinking and moving beyond their and others’ social categorisation. This is achieved by the meeting of experts, which is accessible to the general public at no cost. Although the congress itself is now closed, you can still read the experts’ papers.
