Through various factors from the globalization of skills to wars and refugee movements, societies and communities throughout the world are changing to become increasingly diverse in their racial, ethnic and religious make up. The result is that many governments and societies face a considerable struggle over how to manage community tensions within and between their borders. Through thought-provoking chapters from contributors working in a range of disciplines, Public Policies in Contested Societies explores how everyday processes such as how we organize our working and political lives; develop our policing, health and education systems; protect the environment or respond to cultural differences can all help or hinder such work. Drawing upon examples from over 50 countries, the book shows how many institutions are now adapting their policies and practices to help create more equal, inclusive and peaceful societies. The book is an inspiration and a practical resource for anyone who is interested in helping to shape how future societies can positively welcome the diversity that will be the hallmark of all societies in the decades ahead.Office of the Coordinator for Reconstruction and Stabilization (2005).
