Breaking down barriers to integration

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Social Integration

Welcome to the website for the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Social Integration.

The APPG brings together Parliamentarians from all political parties with an interest in the issue. The group's mission is to drive forward a cross-party conversation on policy solutions to break down barriers to integration and create opportunities for people from all walks of life to build bonds of trust.

Too often the integration of immigrants is depicted as a means of shutting down multiculturalism and replacing it with the politics of assimilation or, worse still, pandering to the politics of hate.This is a fundamental misunderstanding. A strategic and proactive integration agenda is the best way of protecting our diverse, multicultural communities from the peddlers of hatred and division.
