Multi-Ethnic Britain: Facts and Trends.
Amin, Kaushika, Comp.; Richardson, Robin, Comp.
This paper was prepared as a conference resource and a useful reference tool for participants at a conference on multi-ethnic Britain. This reprinted version contains some small textual revisions. It presents a selection of key facts relevant to consideration of the future of Britain as a multi-ethnic democracy. Chapter 1 introduces the subject of ethnicity in Britain and describes components of the multi-ethnic "good" society. Chapter 2 provides general demographic statistics about black and ethnic minorities throughout Britain, and Chapter 3 considers their involvement in society's political culture. Chapter 4 reviews minority participation in the labor market, and chapter 5 explores minority involvement with issues of law, rights, and criminal justice, as well as the realities of racial harassment. Chapter 6 discusses the multiple deprivations that affect many ethnic minority communities. In Britain, color is a factor in social disadvantage and the inability to achieve full citizenship. (Contains 26 tables, 9 figures, and 25 references.) (SLD)
