I was quoted in a story by Emily Dugan of the Independent about a new report from The Challenge Network. Here’s an extract:
Ben Gidley, senior researcher at Oxford University’s Centre on Migration, Policy and Society, said: “I think the evidence points to the trend of every ethnic group moving away from segregation and towards mixing. That’s true for almost every ethnic group. The big exception to that is among white British people, who are less likely to mix than they were a decade ago.
Dr Gidley added: “The school issue is interesting, because the ethnographic research I’ve done in London suggests the barriers along class lines are growing as race barriers are decreasing.”
