Equality, Cohesion and Public Services

Title underline

Summary
What are the likely trends in diversity of the UK population to 2020?  What is our vision for the role (and possible limits) of public services in reducing inequalities and promoting a more cohesive society in 2020?  How will public services deal with difference in 2020?  There will be a particular focus on race/ethnic issues in the UK, but will also include other important dimensions of difference (gender, age, economic inequality, disability, sexual orientation and religion).
