Ethnic inequalities


How are we doing as a society when it comes to ethnic equality?  Historically many came to Britain in the 1950s and 1960s as labour migrants to work in relatively low-skilled occupations.  These pioneers tended to be concentrated in deprived residential areas and to have higher risks of unemployment as a result of discrimination in the labour market.  This briefing note provides an overview of the changing situation of ethnic minorities.  We ask whether the gaps are closing over time, or between generations.

We have published two briefing notes on this topic:

CSI 10: Ethnic Inequalities

CSI 26: Muslim employment
