This paper was first presented at a workshop on ‘Equality and Diversity’ in September 2008. It explores some questions of anti-discrimination law currently in operation in Britain. Problematising the background to and interpretation of Race Relations legislation, and proposes the adoption of a more plurality conscious approach to its framing and interpretation by legal actors. It further argues that drafters of the legislation have not been clear about the conceptual underpinnings of the law and what role the law could realistically play in the field of ethnic and religious diversities, and examines some of the case law emerging under the legislation.
