The project has a rather odd name: RAXEN6. This stands for RAcism and XEnophobia Network, the 6 referring to the year of operation. There are three core members of staff, Professor Peter Ratcliffe (Director), Dr. Teresa Staniewicz (Research Fellow and Project Manager) and Dr. David Owen who runs the National Ethnic Minority Data Archive (NEMDA) at the University. Plus, we also have Jas Bains, who maintains the RAXEN database.

An extremely important additional resource is a small pool of postgraduate students employed as part-time Research Assistants. To complete the team we have an advisory group comprising Professor Jim Beckford, Dr. Bob Carter, Professor Robin Cohen, Professor Robert Fine and Professor Annie Phizacklea
