As British society becomes increasingly multi-ethnic, it is important that an adequate understanding is developed of the needs and concerns of racially and ethnically differing groups. The complexity of ethnicity, socio-economic context, gender, race and racism provide the backdrop for the discussion of parental authority and discipline, attitudes and views about education, and acculturation and racial and ethnic socialisation.
Parenting in Multi-racial Britain presents the findings from an empirical study into the views and experiences of a non-clinical group of 'ordinary' parents in diverse ethnic communities in England.
Ravinder Barn is Professor of social policy and social work at Royal Holloway, University of London. Her research interests are race, ethnicity, and welfare. More specifically: children public care; fostering and adoption; care leavers; adolescent well-being; ethnicity, gender and health and social care; parenting in diverse communities; and the youth justice system.
