Research Publications

As an organisation ROTA has made the decision to refrain from using the term ‘BAME’ to identify anyone that is subject to racialisation. We recognise that the term has previously been used in our publications however; we have since reviewed this and acknowledge that it is non specific, lacks nuance, and generalises anyone that deviates from what is classified as white which is of course deeply problematic. With this in mind, we will instead use the term ‘globalmajority’, or specify the racial identification of the individual that we are making reference to in this report.
