Ethnic Minorities & Racism in Northern Ireland
Published by Pluto Press

Within Northern Ireland, the ongoing troubles have largely overshadowed the presence of over 40 ethnic minority and religious groups. The territory’s 20,000 ethnic minority residents have had to contend with a lack of protective legislation and an ignorance of their respective needs by the state. Economic, social and linguistic requirements have been denied and racism and discrimination have been commonplace.
Divided Society focuses on the key issues — racism, anti-racism, sectarianism, politics, health provision, the media and the law and features case studies of five of the main minority groups: the Chinese, the Travellers, the Pakistanis, Indians and the Jewish community. With contributions from ethnic minority spokespersons, academics, the caring professions and the voluntary sector, this timely book provides a detailed overview of a subject now recognised as an integral component of the agenda for change in Northern Ireland.
