This global symposium on colorism brings together prominent scholars conducting research on the implications of skin color and its intersections with structural and systemic discrimination. This meeting addresses the impact of colorism – a subject often overlooked and centered around bi-racial identities within the U.S. American context – and its manifestations in different parts of the world such as Africa, the Middle East, South and Southeast Asia, East Asia, the Pacific, Latin America, and the Caribbean.
