Read the first report in the series, Character Nation, which was produced in partnership with the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues at the University of Birmingham and launched on 4 June.
On 29 June, Demos launched Learning by Doing, a report that focuses on the importance of non-formal learning in building character in students.
The Demos Integration Hub has now launched. Drawing on data from a wide range of public sources and leading independent research, the Hub provides a data-driven picture of the nation’s changing social and ethnic fabric, to encourage a more evidence-led debate about the integration and segregation of ethnic minorities, and the openness and cohesion of British society.
The Integration Hub reveals a varied picture of modern Britain, in which many minority groups are benefiting from rapid upward social mobility, and others continue to face entrenched poverty and an intensifying disconnection from mainstream life. It explores how both cultural preferences and economic inequality have played a role in determining communities’ differing levels of segregation, and their overall prosperity in British society.
Developed to be accessible to policy-makers, local and national politicians, the media and the general public, the Integration Hub focuses on five core policy areas: residence, work and welfare, society and everyday life, education and attitudes/identity. It combines quantitative data on a wide range of indicators, with a literature review of analysis from the world’s leading demographers, economists and social scientists.
The Demos Integration Hub can be accessed at integrationhub.net.
