Equalities Review Final Report Published

The Equalities Review published the Final Report of its investigation into the causes of persistent discrimination and inequality in British society in February 2007. The review was chaired by Trevor Phillips, Chair of the Commission for Equality and Human Rights.

The Equality and Diversity Forum welcomes the fact that the Prime Minister commissioned this work and we hope that the Government will respond positively to its recommendations. The EDF endorses the need for active policies to enhance equality of opportunity and quality of daily life and well being. The evidence presented by the Equality Review demonstrates what a long way we are from that objective, in spite of the measures taken by Government and others to combat discrimination.
