2. Anti-Racist Policy Design and Delivery
It is clear that, over the past twenty years of devolved race equality policy in Scotland, the same themes and priorities are reflected across the national strategies, reflecting the entrenched inequalities they aim to tackle. Despite this, progress has been limited. This suggests that although the focus has been in the right place, design and/or implementation has missed its mark. The way in which strategies are designed and implemented is, in many ways, just as important as their content.
This section explores the learning which can be gained by looking at the relative success of different approaches to policy making on race equality. It is informed by the review of national strategies, and also by work previously undertaken to examine the equality policy environment.
