This chapter reviews social trends and research debates. In recent years, social policy debates have been dominated by the economic crisis in the global financial system and how to minimalize economic recession. Further, politicians and the media often point to the social risks and fragmentation created by ‘family and social breakdown’. There are social differences and much inequality between ethnic groups. Disadvantages arising from direct and indirect forms of racism are compounded by other sources of disadvantage such as those based on migrant and citizenship status, social class, gender, disability, or social class.

Keywords:   social trends, research debates, social policy debates, economic crisis, global financial system, economic recession, social breakdown, racism
