This book examines how and why experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic in Britain varied according to ethnicity.
Drawing from the Evidence for Equality National Survey (EVENS), the book compares the experiences of ethnic and religious minority groups and White British people in work and finances, housing and communities, health and wellbeing, policing and politics, and racism and discrimination in Britain. Using unrivalled data in terms of population and topic coverage and complete with bespoke graphics, contributors present new evidence of ethnic inequalities and racism, opening them up to debate as crucial social concerns.
Written by leading international experts in the field, this is a must-read for anyone interested in contemporary ethnic inequalities and racism, from academics and policymakers to voluntary and community sector organisations.
“This book and its associated data are a game changer in the reporting of ethnic inequalities in the UK. Policy makers, listen up.” Stephen Jivraj, University College London
