'What, if anything, does this major piece of research mean for mixedness and mixing in the UK? We know from the 2005 citizenship survey that people living in ethnically diverse areas are less likely to trust their neighbours or feel safe, but the survey also suggests that neighbourhood diversity has no relationship with feelings of belonging or respecting ethnic differences. People in mixed areas are however more likely to hold positive views on the amount of racial prejudice there is, and to have friends from different ethnic groups. And of course, although only around two per cent of marriages are inter-ethnic in the UK, this is still one of the highest rates in the developed world.'
