Coalition for Racial Equality & Rights

State of the Nation

image of front cover of State of the Nation report

The State of the Nation report was first published in 2008 and warmly welcomed as an invaluable resource for those working in the field of race equality.

The report was an attempt to point to major, overarching trends and highlight the difficulties and inequalities that Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) people still face.

The Coalition for Racial Equality and Rights is currently reviewing the data captured in 2008 and a new edition of State of the Nation will be published shortly.

The report is available for download below in full or by chapter.
