attack their own country, and the attackers’ faith and ethnicity were scrutinised. A lack of shared values and the failure of multiculturalism shouldered the blame. Meer and Modood note this trend, arguing it is the ‘coupling of diversity and anti-terrorism agendas that has implicated contemporary British multiculturalism as the culprit of Britain’s security woes’ ( 2009 , p. 481). Multiculturalism had failed, and a new approach to security and diversity was needed – and shared values fitted the bill. The challenge, however, with seeing shared values as a solution to

society, such as French republicanism or British multiculturalism, but instead on questions and answers that arise in the day-to-day governance of immigration, as will be seen in the education, workplace and political participation policy fields. This pragmatism provides a strategic direction for political action. As we are in an interpretative framework of analysis rather than an explanatory one, we will also consider for all three areas examined that one common factor explaining this pragmatism is the historical and structural background, coming basically from the

theoretical concept, ‘interculturalism’ can instead be understood in terms of a principle for the management of diversity in practice, solving conflicts by negotiation and dialogue.

In this area, Ed Miliband did not start on a blank page. Labour had been reassessing British multiculturalism since the racial riots of 2001 in the north-east of England, and since the debates on the radicalisation of young British

It was argued, most notably in a Home Office report led by Professor Ted Cantle, that different ethnic communities had become ‘segregated’, lacking any common identity, with the authors ‘particularly struck by the depth of polarisation of our towns and cities’ (Home Office, 2001a : 9). Different communities living in the same city were, it was claimed, living ‘parallel lives

have to realise, that the society that even your deepest feelings can be toddled upon, is the only society worth living in. And the sooner we can learn that, the sooner that Islam can learn that within Europe, the better.12 Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron practically emphasised the same in his important statement in Munich, February 2011, that British multiculturalism has failed because Britain has turned into a community of communities with very little shared between them.
