Beginning in the 1960s the UK government has developed the policy area of ‘race relations’. This chapter examines the intellectual antecedents of this policy area from its initial development in the USA at the end of the First World War, through its internationalisation after the Second World War (via the United Nations), to its place in UK ‘race relations’ policy. The chapter also outlines some of the key features of Race Relations theory and policy.

Keywords:   Race relations practice, Race relations theory, Chicago Commission on Race Relations, The United Nations, Prejudice, Institutional racism
