Insights on racial issues 

We raise awareness of, and analyse, impact reports, statistics and studies on issues affecting Black and Ethnic Minority individuals in the UK.

Our recent work considers:

  • the Office of National Statistics review of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on personal and economic wellbeing in Great Britain (September 2020)

  • the UK Government report on home ownership in England (September 2020); and

  • the Joint Committee's report on 'Black People, Racism and Human Rights' (November 2020)

We have also responded to the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities' open consultation on ethnic disparities and inequality in the UK (November 2020).
