At Ease With Each Other
A major opportunity to discuss cohesion and integration in the UK,
with keynote speaker, Secretary of State, Eric Pickles MP
The Government's first statement on integration, launched in February 2012, marks a significant departure from recent policy and provides a fresh context for communities learning to live together in an increasingly complex society. The time for a debate on integration and diversity is now.
Centrally funded programmes promoting cohesion have recorded significant successes over the last decade. With more emphasis on local communities and agencies delivering the new agenda, what will happen to that success?
In this one-day conference, the Institute of Community Cohesion brings together policymakers, academics and those at the frontline of integration to explore the Government's approach, the UK's social agenda and the wider context of increasing diversity in an age of austerity.
