Aims This project reviews recent research on ethnic minorities in business, focusing in particular on implications for policy. The more specific objectives were to: • Assess existing approaches towards supporting ethnic minority businesses • Identify examples of ‘good practice’ • Map out a research and policy agenda Methodology The methodology involved the following elements: • A review of studies of EMBs from academic sources and grey literature • Telephone interviews with 53 separate Business Links to examine the scope and dimensions of policies towards EMBs. • Where examples of ‘good practice’ policies were identified in these initial interviews, a second interview was conducted with the individual best positioned to describe the initiative. Fifteen such cases are presented in the report.
