You Can’t Put Me In A Box: Super-diversity and the end of identity politics in Britain

You Can’t Put Me In A Box: Super-diversity and the end of identity politics in Britain

Published by IPPR
This paper attempts to map out just how diverse Britain is, both in terms of who lives in Britain and how they identify themselves. We explore how discrimination and disadvantage do not map easily onto orthodox ‘strand-based’ frameworks and assess the shortcomings of current approaches to understanding and tackling discrimination and disadvantage. While we aim for this to be a paper that provokes rather than answers questions, we conclude with some implications we see for policymakers, data collectors and others.
