Critical race theory (CRT) is an approach that offers a radical lens through which to make sense of, deconstruct and challenge racial inequality in society.  This BERA resource provides an overview of CRT, its emergence and development as a theoretical framework and the key concepts that characterise the approach. The resource will be of interest to those seeking an introductory overview of CRT and especially researchers and students examining issues around race, racial identity and racism.
