Ethnicity is increasingly being incorporated into biomedical and health research. Research is currently being conducted on ethnic health differences, ethnic differences in health practices and care practices, and the genetic differences between different ethnic groups. This dissertation reveals that social and political assumptions about race and ethnicity become incorporated into science, where they transform into scientific 'facts'. Ethnic profiling in health care, policy and research may therefore perpetuate and confirm ethnic stereotypes, as well as provide a pseudoscientific basis for social and political notions of ethnic equality.
