We will tackle prejudice, racism and discrimination...
- This is a wide-reaching promise to tackle the significant and longstanding social problems of prejudice, racism and discrimination.
- In July 2020, the government announced the establishment of a Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities to “examine the cause of persistent disparities – considering racism and discrimination”, and the commission has since launched a consultation to help inform its review process.
- The commission has been criticised as inadequate, and the decision to appoint Dr Tony Sewell as its chair faces a legal challenge, but given that its stated aim is to “set out a new, positive agenda”, this policy is ‘in progress’.
