Attitudes towards minority ethnic people and migrant workers in 2014
Dr Philip McDermott (Ulster University)

ARK Seminar Series: 2015/16

The issue of race relations in Northern Ireland was explored again in the 2014 Northern Ireland Life and Times Survey (NILT). In this seminar Dr Philip McDermott, Ulster University, will explore three of the key themes emerging from this data.

First the seminar will consider what was expressed by participants in relation to their social contact with members of minority ethnic communities. Second, questions around the prejudice of respondents will be raised and from this we can consider whether or not different ethnic groups have been perceived in different ways.

Finally, the seminar will reflect on the levels of acceptance and visibility of ethnic minorities in the public sphere. As the NILT Survey has collected data on attitudes towards minority ethnic people and migrant workers for some years now the seminar will also make commentary throughout on changing social attitudes relating to these themes.

Presented at Holywell DiverseCity Community Partnership, Derry~Londonderry, BT48 6PW Thursday 26 November 2015
