Equality, citizenship and belonging: Why is developing an inclusive and caring society so hard?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapters

Abstract

This chapter responds to and reflects on the preceding four chapters in Part II, focusing particularly on the themes of social fragmentation and exclusion that thread throughout the chapters. It adds to this discussion a lens that emphasises the ‘civic regimes’ of institutions and the work they do in shaping citizens’ attitudes and values and the contribution of human agency. It highlights the advantages of viewing public issues through multiple theoretical lenses, the important relationship of academic work to public issues and the imperative for academics to speak out and share their knowledge and insights in the public domain.
