Historically, interactions between academic researchers, research funders, and research users interested in social policy interventions in ethnic relations have been tenuous at best. With this unique book, the contributors seek to develop a dialogue about the internal constraints that have an impact on this field of practice and to kickstart a wider debate within the research community. They aim to produce a renewed awareness of the current linkages between research and social policy in ethnic relations among students of the social sciences and social policy. Research and Policy in Ethnic Relations will be of interest to both academics and students engaged with the research agenda and the substantive policy areas discussed.

Review Quotes
Michael Meadows, Griffith Centre for Cultural Research, Brisbane, Australia
“This engrossing and timely collection of critical perspectives explores the impact of the commodification of knowledge on contemporary ethnic relations, suggesting an urgent need for establishing a more effective dialogue between policymakers and social scientists.”
Nasar Meer, Strathclyde University
“A lucid collection at the cutting edge of critical engagement with how academic research may be used or ignored, this book stands out as a novel and distinct contribution to our understanding and will be of vital use to researchers and practitioners alike."
John Solomos, University of Warwick
“A richly rewarding collection that challenges both academics and policy makers to think differently about how we can develop better policy agendas in this complex field”
Gavan Titley, National University of Ireland Maynooth
“Combining reflective and detailed case studies and thoughtful theoretical accounts, this collection provides a well-judged and challenging intervention in how academic research and policymaking in the field of 'ethnic relations' intersect.”
