Big Society risks increasing racial tensions, ethnic minorities fear
21 July 2011
Ethnic minorities fear the Big Society will fuel racial tensions, according to a new report published by Runnymede.
Particular concerns were raised regarding the government’s flagship policies of free schools and elected police commissioners, with some arguing that these initiatives have the potential to increase segregation.
The report gathered its findings through interviews with residents in Blackburn, Croydon and Newcastle. The majority of the participants were from Black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds.
You can also view a webinar Runnymede hosted discussing these issues with Rita Chadha chief executive or the Refugee and Migrant Forum and Steve Wyler Chief executive of Locality.
The latest review of the National Curriculum by the Government proposes that no BME cultures or individuals are learned about until pupils are 11 years old.
