Britain is an increasingly diverse and multifaceted society.\ud Consequently, manifestations of inequality, prejudice and\ud discrimination are potentially becoming more varied and\ud complex. The meaning of equality itself is a matter of\ud considerable debate. Perceptions, attitudes, stereotypes\ud and emotions permeate social relationships between\ud groups, whether conflictual or harmonious. How are\ud different groups perceived? How do images of different\ud groups map onto prejudice? To what extent do people\ud experience prejudice directed against themselves? There\ud is increasing interest in whether Britain is becoming a\ud more or less tolerant, accepting or indeed coherent\ud society.\ud This report describes the findings of a survey which\ud employed social psychological methods and measures to\ud assess a range of different aspects of prejudice towards\ud six significant groups in British society – defined by\ud gender, age, ethnicity, sexuality, disability and religion.\ud The report examines the values people espouse, their\ud experiences, and their expressions of prejudice, the\ud extent that ‘political correctness’ may affect expressions\ud of prejudice, the social stereotypes underpinning\ud prejudice, whether prejudice is expressed differently\ud towards different types of group, and the extent to which\ud British society is perceived as a cohesive whole or as\ud being formed of distinct and separate groups. It also\ud explores whether prejudice is predominantly an issue of\ud personal attitudes or whether it is rooted more in the\ud relationships between particular social groups.
