Most of the conflicts of today (including Syria) arise from governments inability to positively manage diverse communities within its borders. This book is written to show how the normal public and social processes of a society can increase its ability to positively manage ethnic, racial, religious and cultural differences.
The book is international in its scope It draws on over 50 different examples from Asia, the Americas, Europe, and Africa to demonstrate how societies are adapting their normal social processes of e.g governance, business, education, policing, health, cultural, land ownership, and environmental policies so that they help to manage diversity, and thus help prevent and manage societal conflicts.
It also establishes Shared Society work as a cross-cutting theme that should inform all aspects of public and social policy, and looks at the difficulties and possibilities involved in undertaking such work.
The book is available from Amazon, or from Palgrave MacMillan.
