Diverse Nations, Diverse Responses provides a rich overview of the historical, demographic, and political forces that shape social cohesion. It also provides a comparative analysis of the policy goals that have been pursued, the programs that have been implemented, the ways that social cohesion has been defined and measured, and the effects of such issues on immigrants, minorities, and host communities. The volume provides a cross-national conversation on approaches to social cohesion and will appeal to researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners interested in immigration, diversity management, and the factors that affect policy choice, diversity, and outcomes.
