Description

For people living outside of Northern Ireland, the ongoing troubles have largely overshadowed the presence of over 40 ethnic and religious minority groups in the Province. The Catholic community in the North, and most of the Province's other 20,000 ethnic and religious minority residents have been ignored by government and legislative protection alike. Economic, social and linguistic needs have been denied and many of the groups have suffered racism and discrimination. This collection provides an in-depth study of the subject, focusing on the key issues of racism, anti-racism, sectarianism, representation in the media, and the law. It provides case studies of four key minority groups: the Chinese, Muslim and Jewish communities, and the traveller. With contributions from academics, the voluntary sector and the caring profession, this book provides an overview of a subject now recognized as an integral component of the agenda for change in Northern Ireland.show more
