Organised and hosted by DUT based International Centre of Nonviolence (ICON), the dialogue: Racism: Fresh thinking, fresh action, was promoted by racism in the country. The dialogue will challenge the country’s thinking on racism and encourage citizens to take action on racism “that is informed and focused”.
