Centre on Dynamics of Ethnicity

Our aims

The aim of CoDE is to transform current understanding of the contemporary patterning of ethnic inequalities.

Our broad aims are to:

  • Use empirical evidence to inform our understanding of ethnic inequalities and its drivers in relation to key domains;
  • Increase the capacity of the social science community to engage in this challenging multi-level empirical work using interdisciplinary, mixed-method and comparative approaches;
  • Make the evidence we produce, and the data used to generate that evidence, accessible to both policy and research communities, as well as to the broader public;
  • Work with institutions to assess, challenge and enhance their practices of monitoring and addressing ethnic inequalities in employment and in service provision.
