David Barclay on Multiculturalism

David Barclay, Making Multiculturalism Work: Enabling Practical Action Across Deep Difference (London: Theos, 2013).

Theos have published the above report.

Here’s the opening paragraph from the Executive Summary:

‘In the light of the widespread rejection of state multiculturalism, this report advocates a new approach to living together, grounded not in theory but in practice. Although there is a place for multicultural theorising and attempts to articulate what comprises British values, the report argues that it is in localised ‘political friendships’ that people learn to live and work together. We need to focus less on orthodoxy or right thinking and more on orthopraxy – right doing.
