"The Future of Multi-Ethnic Britain: Challenges, Changes, and Opportunities" was a conference organized by the Runnymede Trust in partnership with other organizations to consider changes in multiethnic Britain in recent years, principal challenges and opportunities for the future, and what to do about them. These issues were discussed in general plenary sessions and in specialist workshops concerned with antiracism, identity, immigration and citizenship, law and justice, urban policy, and work and management. Following an overview of the conference, extracts are presented from the following conference papers: (1) "Purpose and Context" (Trevor Phillips); (2) "Setting the Agenda" (Bhikhu Parekh); (3) "Government Policy" (Michael Howard); (4) "Goals and Gains: (Herman Ouseley); (5)"Ethnicity and Complexity" (Tariq Modood); (6) "Concerns in the Inner City" (Pola Uddin); (7) "Renewing Anti-Racism" (David Gillborn); (8) "The Future of Ethnicity" (Annette Bosscher); (9) "Education Matters" (Fritz Wittek); (10) "The Far Right" (Andree Shepherd); and (11) "The Power of TV Imagery" (Meera Syal). One of the major conference recommendations was that a national commission be set up to develop a new philosophy and strategies to work for the future of the nation's ethnic groups.
