Abstract

[About the book]

What is meant by community? Is there a balance between equality, integration and diversity? Does the idea of identity undermine community cohesion?


Identity, Ethnic Diversity and Community Cohesion considers these questions and explores the concept of identity and how its different meanings and interpretations impact upon community policy. The book brings together the ideas and perspectives of leading academics, policymakers, think-tank representatives, and community workers, offering a cutting-edge and interprofessional approach to the key debates.
