Community cohesion in crisis?

Jon Burnett

Policy Press

This chapter considers an argument which states that the community-cohesion agenda represents a neoliberal governance programme of integrationism. It is in this programme that particular norms and values are prioritised. The chapter uses the case study of Bradford as a basis, and shows how community cohesion has become entwined with the search for urban renaissance, regeneration, and modernity believed to be necessary to ensure the economic prosperity of cities and neighbourhoods.

Keywords:   neoliberal governance programme, integrationism, Bradford, urban renaissance, economic prosperity
