The Conservative Party has come a long way in its relationship with issues of race and identity – both in terms of internal attitudes, approach and policy. Progress has been made to throw off the impression of Conservatism as being synonymous with quiet racism. Now that the Conservative Party is in Government it is vital that we discuss where progressive conservatives envisage the race agenda moving.
Are We There Yet? is a collection of essays written by progressive conservatives that explores some of central questions around the party’s race agenda. It provides a key insight into whether conservatives really believe that race equality has been achieved or if there is still some way to go. The essays explore the extent to which the complex issues around race in the UK have been addressed and what conservatives would do to resolve them.
