Amazon Review

The Commission on the Future of Multi-Ethnic Britain was established by the Runnymede Trust and given the task of analysing the current state of multi-ethnic Britain and to propose ways of countering racial discrimination. One of the main assumptions of the report is that England, Scotland and Wales are at a turning point in their history and could go one of two ways; either they become narrow and inward looking, characterised by conflict between themselves, between regions and among the various communities which make up the populace, or they "develop as a community of citizens" as well as a "community of communities". To avoid the former and achieve the latter involves a thorough discussion around a number of basic themes including rethinking the national story and identity, understanding that all identities are in a process of transition, developing a balance between cohesion, equality and difference, addressing and eliminating all forms of racism, reducing material inequalities, and building a pluralistic human rights culture. The report is built around these six themes, but split into three parts. Part one discusses the themes, while part two discusses how these themes ought to be realised in various areas of social policy, including the criminal justice system, employment, the media, education, health, the arts, immigration and asylum. The third and final part deals with the role of government in providing direction, resources and leadership.

The 23 individuals who made up the Commission represent an impressive breadth of experience and expertise in race-related issues. Undoubtedly the report represents the most important contribution to the national debate on racial discrimination for many years and the Commission's recommendations for the basic reform of the country's social, cultural, and political institutions are bound to be taken seriously. All discussions of multi-ethnic Britain from now onward will have to take this as their basis. --Larry Brown

Synopsis

The report of the Commission on the Future of Multi-Ethnic Britain, launched by the Home Secretary in 1997. It covers all aspects of Britain's multi-ethnic future: religion, immigration, crime, educational policy, housing, racial violence, the arts, policing and prison policy. It also covers all minorities: Irish, Asian, Jewish, Caribbean and African - the entire globe in fact. The conclusions and recommendations are far-reaching and important. They will form government policy for the next 20 years and will affect everyone - of whatever religion or colour - in Britain.
