The UK is becoming more diverse. That much is incontestable.

Yet what is far less understood is what this means for our society. Increasing diversity along the  lines of age, ethnicity and social grade   raises many questions: how should people living in a diverse  society relate to and interact with one another? Are highly diverse and highly integrated  communities possible and even desirable? What is the economic impact of this diversity?

We will seek to answer some of these questions and ultimately explore whether any of this matters.

The Commission has three main aims:

1) Explore the nature and extent of social contact between people of different ages, ethnicities and social grades

2) Assess the impact of social division on the UK economy and society

3) Make practical and affordable recommendations across key policy areas

We welcome your thoughts, so please sign up for updates on the Commission's work, and keep in touch with us via Twitter and Facebook.
