Dispersal and choice: towards a strategy for ethnic minorities in Britain

N Deakin, B G Cohen

Received 12 February 1970

Abstract. Official policy supports the dispersal of coloured immigrants from inner city areas, but this orthodoxy has been challenged from a number of directions and an alternative strategy of 'enrichment' has been proposed. These two policies are discussed in the context of present patterns of dispersal and concentration in Britain, with especial emphasis placed on the factor of choice by members of the coloured minorities. While the majority will opt for the 'comfortable solution' in the inner city, official policy will have to maximise the opportunities for those who wish to move away.
