New Labour and the new integrationism: a critique

Research output: Contribution to Book/ReportChapter

Abstract

Andrew Pilkington explicates the process by which the concern of New Labour’s first administration with combating (institutional) racism and promoting multiculturalism has steadily given way to a concern since 2001 with shoring up the nation. The overriding emphasis of the shifting hegemonic discourse, he argues, has been to move the agenda away from equality and diversity and towards social cohesion, in sociological parlance away from the dominant post-war Weberian approach and back to a Durkheimian approach. It is important, in his view, to ensure that a more appropriate balance is struck between the principles of equality, diversity and social cohesion.
