Nicola Rollock is deputy director of the Centre for Research in Race & Education. Her interests lie in examining race inequity in British society and in understanding how minoritised groups navigate and survive racism.

She is best known for her recent research The educational strategies of the black middle classes, which received widespread coverage in the press, and the seminal report The Stephen Lawrence Inquiry 10 Years On, the conclusions of which were debated in parliament.

Dr Rollock was head of education of the race equality charity The Runnymede Trust, where she led the design of a national training programme and resources for teachers. She has been an adviser to a number of government and non-government organisations – recently giving evidence to the Liberal Democrats Race Equality Taskforce – and writes widely for academic and mainstream audiences with articles in The Guardian, The Voice Newspaper and The Evening Standard.

She is writing a book about the Black Middle Classes (to be published by Routledge in 2014) and has started a two year project, funded by the Society for Educational Studies, examining how issues of race and racism have been incorporated into educational policy in the 20 year period since the murder of Stephen Lawrence.
