Promoting social cohesion: Implications for policy and evaluation

Peter Ratcliffe and Ines Newman

Abstract

This book makes a forthright case for a shift in policy focus from ‘community cohesion’ to the broader notion of social cohesion, and is distinctive in its focus on evaluation. It constitutes a valuable source both for practitioners involved in social-cohesion interventions and for researchers and students studying theory-based evaluation and the policy areas highlighted: housing, intergenerational issues, the recession, education, communications, and community development.

Keywords: social cohesion, community cohesion, evaluation, policy, housing, intergenerational issues, recession, education, communications, community development
