Discrimination makes us all poorer.
There is ample evidence that diversity and migration bring benefits – economic, cultural and social – and makes cities more attractive. When we fail to recognise the diversity advantage and exclude those with a different cultural background from politics, the economy and social networks, our lives are poorer. Discrimination hearts us all
