Poverty and ethnicity in the UK
A summary of the findings of poverty and ethnicity research since 1991, describing differences in poverty rates and experiences by ethnic group.
Poverty rates vary dramatically across the UK's ethnic groups – an issue of concern both for poverty reduction policies and for social justice. This book provides a comprehensive account of these variations and explores the reasons why they occur.
Drawing on a wealth of research conducted since 1991, and with a particular focus on the most recent evidence, the report:
- reviews what we know about poverty and ethnicity;
- provides a detailed and considered insight into the factors contributing to the differing rates of poverty;
- outlines the policy implications of existing research; and
- reflects on the limitations to our knowledge and understanding of the issues.
