“… effective strategy in any field of human endeavour must be based upon precise knowledge of the goals one wants to achieve; a thorough understanding of the obstacles in the way; the adoption of appropriate measures to overcome those obstacles or ‘limiting factors’; and a programme of tactical action to move from the current to the desired position. If an organisation seeks to eliminate racial discrimination and to promote equal opportunity which should lead generally to racial equality … then it is imperative that the causes of racial discrimination are identified, and measures taken to eliminate them. However, the dearth of research into, and the general lack of interest in, the underlying causes of racial discrimination has meant that many organisations have adopted policies and programmes of work to achieve equality of opportunity, without an adequate understanding of the obstacles militating against the achievement of that objective.”
