Ethnic identity and inequalities in Britain: The dynamics of diversity
Publication date: 13 May 2015, Policy Press
This is the companion website to Ethnic identity and inequalities in Britain: The dynamics of diversity. It provides additional resources, including the data used in every chapter and a series of profilers where you can quickly find statistics on ethnicity and related themes for your local district or region.
Ethnic identity and inequalities in Britain provides a comprehensive perspective of the dynamics of ethnic diversity from a series of experts associated with the Centre on Dynamics of Ethnicity. It presents easy to interpret chapters that challenge misconceptions associated with greater ethnic diversity, including increased segregation, exclusive growth of minority groups through immigration and a national identity crisis. The contributions highlight persistent inequalities in access to housing, employment, education and good health faced by some ethnic groups. The book is essential reading for policy and research groups interested in ethnicity in Britain.
