As the executive officers of TRS-UK, the UK’s national association for Theology and Religious Studies, we register our deep sadness and concern about racial injustice, as highlighted by the ‘Black Lives Matter’ campaign and by the disproportionate impact of Covid-19 on the BAME population of the UK. We regret the ethnic and racial imbalances and inequalities within our own professional community. TRS-UK is committed to working with UK TRS Departments and Subject Associations to oppose racism in all its forms, and to work toward more just practices in our own contexts. This includes fostering and disseminating good practice in ethnic diversity and equality, in recruitment, teaching, and research. We firmly believe in the power of good-quality teaching and research in religion and theology, from early education onwards, in combatting racial inequality and in challenging the systems of thought on which it is based.
