This chapter presents a ‘policy conversation’ between three leading practitioners who are active in civil society and governance. The conversation of Maqsood Ahmed, Ted Cantle and Dilwar Hussain focuses on the relationship of faith, multiculturalism and community cohesion. They also debate on whether the emergence of faith identities posits a great challenge to multiculturalism's focus on race and ethnicity. While there have been changes noted by the contributors, most of them agree that these changes do not signal the end of multiculturalism rather they indicate ‘a moment of transition’, whose outcome and direction remains vague.
