Community Cohesion against Ethnic Segregation

  • Jan Dobbernack
Part of the Palgrave Politics of Identity and Citizenship Series book series ( CAL)


The concept of ‘community cohesion’ was introduced in Britain to recommend a new vision for culturally diverse zones of the country. Against the background of growing anxiety about risks associated with this diversity it entered the stage in 2001 under the impression of urban unrest and in order to explain and remedy failures of race relations and ethnic minority integration. Beyond the formation of this political agenda, cohesion became a term of choice to address various problematic tendencies that were seen to put doubt on the stability of the social fabric in troublesome localities and on a national scale.
