18. Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a framework that has been used in the US and increasingly in the UK to theorise, examine and challenge the ways race and racism impact on social structures, practices and discourses. The key tenets are that it accepts that racism exists, it considers the intersection of race with other forms of inequalities e.g. class, gender, disability, it accepts that within the context of the West there is a dominant view e.g. Whiteness it believes that the voices and lived experiences of those
under-represented is central to informing action and finally that action is most likely when there is interest-convergence between those with power and those with less.
