Over the past 15 years, ‘multiculturalism’ in Britain has often appeared to be in crisis. Much of this has been driven by events in, and linked to, the north of England – the 2001 riots and perceptions of deep ethnic segregation, the 7/7 bombings and the threat of ‘extremism’, and the activities of groups like the English Defence League. These concerns have significantly focused on young people, on their experiences and ‘identities’, and on how policy should respond to them. This lecture will draw on 15 years’ experience of carrying out research around issues of cohesion, extremism and multiculturalist policy in the north of England. In particular, it will discuss how policy initiatives have been understood and experienced at ground-level by young people, their communities and those working with them, and what these insights offer to future policy approaches.
