This chapter applies a comparative lens both to the material emanating from the WaVE case studies and to the chapters gathered in this book. It highlights the transversal patterns found in the case study material, offering thereby further insights on the practices, tendencies and mechanisms leading to conflict or cohesion. The factors that can be identified as having more or less positive results in the direction of increased social cohesion are ambiguous. In terms of factors that lead to more or less negative results in terms of social cohesion between majorities and minorities, these are in many cases interrelated. A lack of cultural competence among majority individuals and institutions providing welfare to minorities often leads to inappropriate, or ineffective, welfare provision. In terms of tendencies towards ‘conflict’ or ‘cohesion’ arising from values, the most conspicuous area of conflict in the domain of welfare relates to minority social networks.

Keywords:   WaVE case studies, social conflict, social cohesion, minorities, majorities, cultural competence, welfare, minority social networks
