This chapter examines the aspiration and suburbanisation of ethnic minority groups in East London, England. It argues that the concept of aspiration underwent something of a rediscovery in the New Labour renaissance, when Tony Blair, Peter Mandelson, and Gordon Brown found common ground in asserting that individual aspiration was not a dirty word but a key part of the New Labour project. The chapter explains that ethnic minorities consider aspiration and educational achievement as a key part of the process of upward social mobility.

Keywords:   ethnic minorities, aspiration, suburbanisation, East London, England, New Labour, Tony Blair, Peter Mandelson, Gordon Brown, educational achievement
