David Cameron on Multiculturalism: a challenge to race equality and human rights?

A report by Dan Silver, One North West and Amina Lone, Women’s Solidarity Forum.

David Cameron’s speech on multiculturalism in Munich last week signalled a major statement from the coalition Government about its thinking on race equality. The Prime Minister said that: ‘under the doctrine of state multiculturalism, we have encouraged different cultures to live separate lives, apart from each other and apart from the mainstream’.

According to the Prime Minister, the policy of multiculturism has failed and needs to be replaced by one in which there is a single shared identity. We find the content and timing of this speech and new direction on race relations thinking deeply concerning.”
