Future identities: changing identities in the UK

Foresight report looking at how changes in the next 10 years will affect views of identity in the UK.


This report looks at how views of identity in the UK might change over the next 10 years. It identifies the main challenges for effective policy making and implementation in a rapidly changing, globalised, technology-rich, and densely networked UK. It focuses on implications for:

  • crime prevention and criminal justice
  • health, the environment and wellbeing
  • skills, employment and education
  • preventing radicalisation and extremism
  • social mobility
  • social integration

Further details of the project and the supporting evidence are available from the future identities project page.
