Racism is corrosive to our society and must be actively opposed

09 Jun 2020

The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) vehemently believes in building a world in which everyone is treated with equal dignity, worth and respect. The killing of George Floyd has drawn attention yet again to the deeply rooted structural inequalities that exist across society.

As a centre of excellence for the resolution of disputes, we want everyone to have equal access to justice irrespective of their background. Racism is corrosive to that ideal, and we unequivocally condemn it in all its forms.

It is imperative that we use this moment to constructively engage with the question of how we tackle inequalities, and what role each of us – as individuals, communities and organisations – need to play in doing so.

We will continue to promote diversity, equality and inclusion and will make a frank and honest appraisal of where we can do more to give practical effect to that commitment.
