Findings from engagement work with minority ethnic community groups on ethnicity research and data relating to justice in Scotland, conducted on behalf of the Cross Justice Working Group on Race Data and Evidence.
Community Engagement: Summary of Justice-Related Findings
"Unfortunately, the colour of your skin matters… I was born and brought up here, and I'm looking at my grandchildren and thinking, you think that you're part and parcel of this fabric of this society that we've loved all our lives and the minute somebody sees your skin, it's the colour of your skin that matters."
Participant 7 – Group 2
Eleven participants from organisations representing a range of minority ethnic communities took part in 2 discussion groups in July 2021, to discuss ethnicity research and data relating to justice in Scotland. The purpose of the groups was to help inform the work of the Cross Justice Working Group on Race Data and Evidence and feed into the development of their research plan and data development plan.
These discussions took a qualitative approach, with a small number of self-selecting participants, therefore the findings presented cannot be generalised or said to represent the views of minority ethnic communities more widely. They are the personal views of participants.
Issues beyond the remint of the Cross Justice Working Group were also discussed. This report summarises the findings most relevant to the Working Group. Wider findings will be shared with the SG Equality Data and Improvement Programme (EDIP) Board for them to consider.
