On Tuesday 23 January, Warwick in London hosted an exciting and controversial event on caste discrimination in the UK. The event included a documentary screening of Caste Aside, which looks at the contentious fight to legislate on caste in the UK. The screening was followed by an extremely lively discussion which included panel members, Anil Bhanot, Meena Dhandra and Sat Pal Muman from opposing sides of the argument and an audience Q&A which was heated at times but managed by expert chair, Warwick in London’s Siobhan Benita.
