Anti-racism group seeks changes in education and justice

The group set up to develop a plan to tackle racism in Ireland says urgent action is needed in two key areas.

The steering group for the National Action Plan Against Racism says changes are needed in both the education and justice sectors.

It says education can help both young and old students integrate better and escape the poverty trap and new strategies are needed to ensure that happens.

It also says changes are needed in the courts and prison system to take account of the new multiculturalism in Ireland.
