In the month that Professor Sir Tom Devine stated that 'Sectarianism is in decline in Scotland' (The Herald, April), Neil Davidson, Maureen McBride, Nasar Meer and Paul Goldie discuss topics outlined in No Problem Here: Understanding Racism in Scotland, including Irish Catholics and Muslims in today's society.

The event will be held in the Scottish Parliament and sponsered by Anas Sarwar MSP.
