New Complexities of Cohension in Britatin: Super-diversity, Transnationalism and Civil-Integration Steve Vertovec

Introduction

As the Commission on Integration and Cohesion (CIC) observes, British society is becoming ever more diverse. Although largely conditioned by immigration dynamics, it is short-sighted to view this diversity solely or predominantly in terms of ethnicity or country of origin. There are many other variables interacting to affect integration and cohesion. Through a review of social scientific research and theory, this commissioned thinkpiece explores additional dimensions of immigration-related diversity and sociocultural complexity existing in the UK today.
