Ever since the arrival of the Empire Windrush with the first group of post-war migrant workers in 1948, there has been keen discussion in the UK about what a diverse, plural society should look like. Of course, the arrival of different groups to these shores was nothing new, and much of the rhetoric today about immigration and minority communities reflects past hopes, fears and concerns about racial, ethnic and religious diversity - including Jewish and Catholic communities - stretching back to at least the writings of John Locke. Over the past few decades various UK governments have adopted different approaches to the issue, mainly based on some form of multiculturalism. CMPL lists some of the various government reports and has organised workshops to gauge Christian responses to them. It has also sought to discover the lived reality in our communities by collecting various case studies from around the country. Please contact us if you have a case study to contribute.
