Rabina Khan: Redefining Multiculturalism

Duration:
15 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 17 October 2012

Author and independent local councillor Rabina Khan calls for a new understanding of multiculturalism which acknowledges people's multiple identities and avoids simplistic labels.

"Regardless of which label we choose, there are different experiences for each label, and so there are many different ways of observing any religion or culture or lifestyle," she says.

"By valuing multiple identities, multicultural Britain enhances rather than undermines British identity among minority communities."

Producer: Sheila Cook.
