In October 2009 the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), published ‘Good relations: a conceptual analysis’ by Nick Johnson and John Tatam of the Institute of Community Cohesion. The report provides a conceptual basis for the development by the EHRC of a measurement framework for good relations.
It examines what is meant by good relations and how this reflects, or stems from, theoretical approaches and public policy, and begins to suggest ways in which good relations might be measured. The report identifies five potential ways in which good relations might be spelt out and thus measured: interactions with others; attitudes to others; participation and influence; personal security; and sense of belonging.
