Drawing on a number of research studies of planning and urban policy, ace and Planning asks why racial equality has not been higher on professional and government agendas, and suggests strategies for those working on change. It considers key issues such as how planning activities might lead to more emphasis on the significance of racial equality; might currently it be unwittingly underpinning racial disadvantage? Alternatively, can planning help challenge racism and promote equal opportunities? The book's arguments are sensitive to the rapidly changing focus of the politics of race including: 'fortress Europe', Macpherson and modernism.
