Abstract

The effect of ethnic diversity on communities has become an increasingly hot topic. Many academics and policy makers believe that ethnically diverse communities are characterised by distrust and low levels of social cohesion, while numerous studies show an apparent negative link between the ethnic diversity of local communities and the extent to which residents express trust in, and a sense of cohesion with, one another. In this podcast NCRM Director Patrick Sturgis discusses new research that shows a different and more complex picture. The podcast is based on a new article Ethnic diversity, segregation and the social cohesion of neighbourhoods in London by Patrick Sturgis (NCRM, Univ. Southampton), Ian Brunton-Smith (University of Surrey), Jouni Kuha (LSE) and Jonathan Jackson (LSE) has been published in Ethnic and Racial Studies journal. The BBC News home editor Mark Easton covered this research in his article 'Is diversity good or bad for community cohesion?' (31 Oct 2013)
