Back to basics: Towards a successful and cost-effective integration policy by Jill Rutter was published in March 2013 by IPPR.
The report sets the scene for further work on integration policy and practice, by:
- reviewing theoretical approaches to integration, including the differences between the crucial concepts of integration and cohesion
- assessing more than a century of British integration policy, with an especial focus on policy changes and government initiatives since 1990
- analysing the different ways in which integration occurs, through education, employment, income, childhood, housing and society
- identifying some of the essential elements and potential opportunities for a new kind form of integration policy, nationally and at the community level.
