  2. 2. syllabus <ul><li>There are aspects of urban living in a richer part of the world that need careful planning in order to support the population and environment of cities and towns. </li></ul><ul><li>Cultural Mix – factors causing ethnic segregation within urban areas. Strategies aimed at supporting the multicultural nature of many urban areas </li></ul>
  3. 3. Lesson Objectives <ul><li>All will recognise that the UK’s cities are more ethnically diverse than the rest of the country and understand the problems of racial segregation in urban areas. </li></ul><ul><li>Most will understand what strategies have been introduced to integrate different ethnic groups in urban areas. </li></ul><ul><li>Some will understand the pros and cons of there being a multicultural society, that many of the cons are perceived rather than real and be able to evaluate the success of these integration strategies. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Multicultural Britain <ul><li>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbXgxMsafC4 </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2006/jan/23/britishidentity.features11 </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.guardian.co.uk/flash/0,,1690291,00.html </li></ul>
  5. 5. Key Terms <ul><li>Segregation </li></ul><ul><li>Occurs when people of a particular ethnic group choose to live with others from the same ethnic group, separating themselves from other groups. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Your Opinion <ul><li>Do you think that ethnic segregation is a problem here in the West Midlands? </li></ul><ul><li>Why do you think segregation happens? </li></ul><ul><li>Discuss these points with the others on your table in preparation for a class discussion </li></ul>
  7. 7. Why do ethnic minority groups cluster in one area? <ul><li>Support from others </li></ul><ul><li>People feel safe and secure when they can associate with other people of the same background, religion and language. There is a sense of belonging and protection from racial abuse. </li></ul><ul><li>A familiar culture </li></ul><ul><li>In a strange culture, there is comfort from being with people who have similar ideas and beliefs and speak the same language. </li></ul><ul><li>Facilities </li></ul><ul><li>People want to live near to services that are important to their culture. E.g. Sikhs can worship in a gurdwara and Moslems in a Mosque (e.g. Highgate Mosque, Birmingham). Familiar foodstuffs will be available in shops (e.g. Sai Dataa Sarees, Sparkhill, Birmingham) </li></ul>
  8. 8. Why do ethnic minority groups cluster in one area? (continued) <ul><li>Strength in Numbers </li></ul><ul><li>People have a stronger voice if they are heard as a group, rather than individually (e.g. campaigning for counter terrorism cameras to be removed in Sparkbrook, Birmingham) </li></ul><ul><li>Employment factors </li></ul><ul><li>Immigrant groups tend to do low paid jobs or have a high rate of unemployment. They have limited money and so can only afford cheaper housing in certain parts of the city, usually inner city areas. </li></ul>
  9. 9. What can be done to integrate different ethnic groups and reduce segregation? <ul><li>Work in groups to come up with a list of proposals for what we can do here in the West Midlands to reduce segregation . </li></ul>Strategies to support the multicultural nature of urban areas are not aimed at forcing people to mix but to make sure that everyone has equal access t services like healthcare and education
  10. 10. Measures taken to reduce segregation in Birmingham… <ul><li>Increasing children’s achievement by improving educational provision and opportunities in deprived areas: and seeking to improve literacy in areas where English can be a second language </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing employment through initiatives to ensure basic skills and access to information and training </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing community involvement by ensuring that the needs of minority groups are understood and met </li></ul><ul><li>Providing facilities that encourage meetings of all sections of a community rather than separate ethnic groups </li></ul>
  11. 11. Strategies to reduce ethnic segregation: <ul><li>Make sure everyone can access information about services – e.g. print leaflets in a variety of languages </li></ul><ul><li>Improve communication between all parts of the community e.g. by involving the leaders of different ethnic communities when making decisions </li></ul><ul><li>Providing interpreters at places like hospitals and police stations </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure there are suitable services for the different cultures – e.g. provide same sex doctors </li></ul>
