ROTA (November 2018) Brexit for BAME Britain: Investigating the impact

Findings from ROTA’s briefing with Rabia Mirza and Dr Irum Shehreen Ali finds the overall impact of Brexit on Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities will be negative, both economically and for community relations if the government does not change track. Using the data and projections available we find that BAME communities are in a triple bind: socioeconomically worse off than their white counterparts; blamed for economic insecurity and ‘cultural change’; and, as a result, the main targets of hate crime as visible minorities.
