The creation of a more open society and improving race equality are core current policy concerns. Understanding the part class and ethnicity plays in determining life chances is critical to policies tackling inequality and promoting opportunity. This report aids such understanding by investigating the impact of class background and ethnicity on class position. This report traces patterns of intergenerational social mobility for children from different ethnic groups all growing up in England and Wales in the 1960s to 1980s. Unusually for mobility studies, it directly measures the class and other characteristics of study members' parents in 1971 and 1981 and their own outcomes in 2001. We know very little about patterns of parent to child social class mobility for Britain's minority ethnic groups. This study therefore provides a major contribution to our understanding in this area. Uniquely, it also examines how religion can supplement our understanding of ethnic minority social mobility. Relevant to policy makers concerned with social justice and equality of opportunity as well as to academics, commentators and policy analysts, this report is essential reading for all those wishing to know more about the extent and nature of ethnic minority achievement and disadvantage.Platt, Lucinda is the author of 'Migration And Social Mobility The Life Chances of Britain's Minority Ethnic Communities', published 2006 under ISBN 9781861348005 and ISBN 1861348002.
