Geographies of Ethnic Diversity and Inequalities (GEDI) is a £1m investment from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The project runs from February 2023 to April 2026. Grant ref: ES/W012499/1

This project is examining, analysing and explaining the UK's changing ethnic geographies through a novel integration of research strands on ethnic diversity, residential segregation, socio-spatial inequalities, and migration. GEDI is a timely and innovative programme of research which uses the latest Census data to provide a comprehensive picture of the small area (neighbourhood) ethnic landscape of the UK, and how this has changed over time (1991-2021/22).

Collaborating institutions: Office for National Statistics, University of St Andrews, University of Bristol, University College London, Dartmouth College (USA), and University of Washington (USA).

Project partners: Royal Geographical Society with the Institute of British Geographers and the Runnymede Trust.

GEDI is also supported by a Project Advisory Group from central and local government and the third sector.
