Drawing on twelve personal publications arising from eight empirical contract research projects in Scotland, the paper will illuminate ways in which applied research, commissioned by state institutions, shape & sustain political notions of "race". Arguing from a Race Formation perspective (Winant), the paper will explain how "race" as a process, is continually created, destroyed & re-invented in policy directed research processes, structures & relationships. A central argument in this paper will be that in an absence of an agreed "common-sense" meaning of "race" in Britain, local research participants' understandings of "race" & racialised inequalities are principally influenced by state driven ideologies.
