Race and Faith: The Deafening Silence

Race and Faith: The Deafening Silence

Trevor Phillips, May 2016

For more than half a millennium, Britain has managed diversity through a process of organic integration, with newcomers and their traditions gradually absorbed into the culture. But in this new age of ‘superdiversity’, with more people of very different backgrounds arriving in greater numbers than ever before, is that enough?

Do We Need Mass Immigration?

Do We Need Mass Immigration?: The economic, demographic, environmental, social and developmental arguments against large-scale net immigration to Britain

Anthony Browne, November 2002

This groundbreaking report, published in 2002, argues that current levels of immigration are unsustainable and detrimental to the interests of many people in Britain. Anthony Browne says immigration is ineffective as a global development policy and that it should be balanced, with equal numbers of people coming and going.
