The concept and policy of 'multiculturalism' are under continuing attack. A broad policy language has replaced 'race' and ethnicity agendas. We demonstrate how 'community cohesion' and 'equalities' became dominant concepts in managing cultural relations in England. Local authority and community perspectives in one northern city reveal good local practice being undermined by national discourses stigmatising British Muslims, creating barriers to integration, resulting in a dual, conflicting process. While community cohesion de-emphasises 'race', ethnic and religious differences are highlighted in security and immigration discourses.
