Social Integration research project

The City of Bradford implements an Integrated Communities Strategy based on a vision of building an integrated community where people from different backgrounds can live, learn, work, and socialise together. A society having shared rights, responsibilities, opportunities, and people live in peace and help each other.

The social integration research project consists of different research activities that will contribute information to support the work of equality, diversity and inclusion. It will address factors that influence where people live, why different ethnic groups live in certain areas. It will also examine how and why different ethnic groups attend certain schools. The project will also examine why people do not report hate crime incidents.
