Official study attacks attempts by successive governments to boost ethnic integration as saris, samosas and steel drums for the already well-intentioned
The study, which was commissioned by then prime minister David Cameron and Theresa May when she was home secretary, is likely to trigger controversy. Among the findings, Casey claims:

That while segregation has reduced over the population as a whole, in a number of local areas ethnic or migrant groups have become increasingly divided.
That fears of being labelled racist have prevented society from challenging sexist, misogynistic and patriarchal behaviour in some minority communities.
