Overview

Research and Policy in Ethnic Relations: Compromised Dynamics in a Neoliberal Era by Charles Husband


Historically, interactions between academic researchers, research funders, and research users interested in social policy interventions in ethnic relations have been tenuous at best. With this unique book, the contributors seek to develop a dialogue about the internal constraints that have an impact on this field of practice and to kickstart a wider debate within the research community. They aim to produce a renewed awareness of the current linkages between research and social policy in ethnic relations among students of the social sciences and social policy. Research and Policy in Ethnic Relations will be of interest to both academics and students engaged with the research agenda and the substantive policy areas discussed.
