As we think about the future of Britain, we believe there are four main areas where we want to open up more public debate – identity and integration, migration and opportunity.
In considering these, our starting point is our belief in:
- Building a modern British identity which helps us to build an inclusive citizenship, where we can all be confident about who we are, and which recognises the national and local identities we hold in Britain today too.
- Promoting integration in Britain, so that people from all backgrounds contribute fully to the society that we want to share.
- Understanding that migration has long made a positive contribution to British life, so we need to address its economic and social pressure, to manage it fairly for everyone.
- Working for economic and social opportunity to be shared across our society – so that the chances in life of Britain’s next generation are not determined by where their parents came from, and so that nobody is left behind.
