I am a political sociologist and social theorist. I work on the critical theorisation of race, racism and anti-racism and have done extensive research into the contemporary politics of (im)migration and collective action for migrants' rights. I am currently focusing on the perceived crisis of multiculturalism. My latest book is The Crises of Multiculturalism: Racism in a Neoliberal Age (with Gavan Titley, Zed Books, 12 May 2011). My first book published in 2004 is entitled Racism and Anti-Racism in Europe (Pluto Press, 2004). I have also co-edited Race and State with Ronit Lentin (Cambridge Scholars' Press, 2006), the paperback edition of which was published in September 2008. My latest book, an accessible insight into my approach to racism, Racism: A beginner's guide, is published by OneWorld in 2008. The Politics of Diversity in Europe, co-edited with Gavan Titley of the National University of Ireland, is published by the Council of Europe in 2008. In addition, I publish regularly in European Journal Social Theory and Patterns of Prejudice among other journals. I am also a regular contributor to OpenDemocracy.Net.
