This chapter explores the implications of the commitments for ethnic minorities in Britain. It starts by charting the development of ethnic diversity, not least in order to unpack some of the complexities often neglected in discussion and largely ignored in available statistics. It reviews evidence regarding the effect of ‘community safety’ issues on the two largest minority ethnic groups up to the election of the New Labour government of 1997, as background to developments since then. It considers the impact on minorities of the government's current approach to community safety. It concludes by discussing the implications of continuing to pursue this approach in future.
