The report, published in partnership with the Trust for London,  finds that racist violence continues to be a serious problem in the UK, particularly amongst young people in London.

It argues that a “zero tolerance” approach to racism, such as teachers excluding pupils for such behaviour from school, has failed and can drive the problem underground.

Instead, the report argues, a more proactive response that draws out the problem and confronts it with the aim of prevention is needed.

The report focuses on three initiatives taking place across London which specialise in preventative approaches to tackling racist violence, based in Barking and Dagenham, Greenwich and Bexley.
