Title:

Barnard and Turner (2011) Poverty and ethnicity: A review of evidence

Summary:

Barnard and Turner (2011) produced this report on behalf of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. It examines existing evidence on the relationship between poverty and ethnicity. The report succinctly summarises the evidence within the domains of education, work, caring, social networks, inequality and the role of place. The report also emphasises the need to understand the connection between these domains and features of ethnic identity, whether religion, age or gender related. In addition, the influence of community actions, location and broader interactions with wider structures - such as social services, the labour market and social norms - on outcomes for an individual is considered. While the report also draws attention to migrant worker susceptibility to low-paid and low-status employment, importantly, it also offers a better understanding of how to support action on poverty amongst ethnic groups.
