Social justice and public policy

This chapter discusses the idea of multiculturalism, which is currently under attack. This raises two important issues, namely the need to recall that most national policies are now multicultural societies, and the issue of there being more people who have failed to demonstrate an understanding of what the multiculturalist policy framework is trying to achieve. It also discusses the various issues of social justice that are related to multiculturalism, the UK debates on the ‘race relations problem’, and Britain’s approach to multiculturalism.

Keywords:   multiculturalism, national policies, multicultural societies, multiculturalist policy, race relations, social justice
