Approaches to Policy Development in the Field of Equal Opportunities

Part of the Government Beyond the Centre book series


The 1980s have been a decade of debate as regards the development of equality of opportunity in local government. It is of course too soon to attempt a definitive assessment of the achievements of that decade. The significance of the changes which have occurred, the distinction between rhetoric and reality, can be confidently judged only in a longer perspective. This chapter sets out to clear the ground for such an exercise, providing both a narrative account of the development of policy and an approach to the analysis of its implementation.
