 "So often we read in our newspapers and hear from our politicians that immigration and ethnic diversity adversely affect a neighbourhood, but careful research shows this to be wrong.

So our research demonstrates the disadvantages of living in deprived areas but the positives of living in ethnically diverse areas." (Professor James Nazroo: Manchester University)
