In the context of widespread public debate over the future of multiculturalism in the UK, this chapter tackles the issue of inter-ethnic relations as found in a speci"c urban area of the UK; the city of Leicester in the East Midlands of England.1 With debate increasingly focussed upon the ills of residential segregation and the separate development of communities alongside a need for greater interethnic contact and shared values, I show how the geographies of everyday multiculturalism work to condition forms of racism and acceptance through both cultures of marginality and practices of inter-ethnic encounter.
