Public Policy and Ethnicity contests the claim that ethnic-based public policy enhances democratic values and practices by recognizing cultural diversity. It also disputes the claim that such policies lead to greater social inclusion and social justice for ethnic peoples. Investigating the global process of ethnic politics at local levels, this collection, through a focus on policy areas such as education, business, government and health, demonstrates that recognizing ethnicity in public policymaking not only creates artificial divisions and permanent boundaries, but also supports the reactionary politics of elites. The boundaries created between ethnic groups by public policy increases rather than decreases social division whilst doing little to alter patterns of social inequality.
