In this research we present a short review of literature explaining how historical factors and perceptions of discrimination may lead members of ethnic minority groups to target a restricted range of employment opportunities, thereby leading to disadvantage in job markets. The review shows that much of the research has been conducted in the US, and identifies a need for UK specific research.
