Stage 3: Discrimination, Stage 4: Dehumanization, Stage 6: Polarization

Details

Since 2010, the U.K. has become increasingly hostile for minorities, with the government and far-right parties often demonizing refugees, immigrants, and the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller community. The government has recently made plans to criminalize aspects of the lifestyle of Gypsies, Roma and Travellers, who already face high levels of normalized racism and discrimination. Additionally, the government plans to offshore asylum processes, having already detained refugees in barracks during COVID-19. The Home Office also recently targeted residents invited to the U.K. from the Caribbean after WWII with deportations in the Windrush Scandal, since the government wrongly considered them to be illegal. Efforts to compensate survivors of the scandal have been considered insufficient.
