    Inter-disciplinary Conference: The Politics of Social Cohesion

    The concept of social cohesion is becoming increasingly important in politics as well as public opinion. In particular, migration and the forms of ethnocultural diversity to which it gives rise are increasingly considered causes of conflict and destabilizing factors in contemporary democratic regimes, in part because such diversity is believed to undermine important values, including trust and solidarity. The main idea is that social identities determine attachment to and solidarity with those who belong to one’s group and separation and detachment from those who do not belong. As a result of this, it is further feared that diversity tends to undermine social spending and ultimately the welfare state. One aspect of these developments is that the work of social scientists on social cohesion is increasingly becoming politicized. This inter-disciplinary conference aims to address social cohesion and the political uses to which this concept is put, in particular in relation to ethnocultural diversity. Important questions include: What are the mechanisms through which social or national identities foster cohesion (e.g. trust and solidarity) and inclusion, and what are the mechanisms through which they foster conflict and exclusion? To what extent does the empirical evidence support various political claims about the importance of e.g. shared national identities as a precondition for solidarity and peaceful community life? Which kinds of community are (most) conducive to integration and stability, e.g. is citizenship enough? How is immigration related to social cohesion and levels of social spending? Why have social cohesion discourses gained such prominence in contemporary liberal societies? What do normative ideals such as liberty and equality imply with respect to a) immigration policies that aim at protecting/fostering social cohesion, and b) what we may legitimately expect from minorities and majorities with respect to conforming to a shared identity? Do multicultural policies undermine social cohesion? Confirmed speakers include: Keith Banting, Policy Studies, Queen’s University Nils Holtug, Philosophy, University of Copenhagen Christian Joppke, Government, American University of Paris James Jupp, Immigration and Multicultural Studies, Australian National University Niels Kærgård, Economics, University of Copenhagen Yngve Lithman, Sociology, University of Bergen Andrew Mason, Social Science, University of Southampton Per Mouritsen, Politics, University of Aarhus Varun Uberoi, Politics & International Relations, University of Oxford  Eric Uslaner, Government and Politics, University of Maryland Ellie Vasta, COMPAS, University of Oxford Download the conference programme here.

    The Crisis of Europe

    Building on the German cultural analyst Siegfried Kracauer, the Italian historian Carlo Ginzburg operates with various optical perspectives: Close ups and long shots. Employing this complex and differentiated lens technique, the conference suggests shifting between micro- and macro-culture-historical approaches to the period 1914-1991, which – with two world wars and a cold war – marked a paradigm shift decisively changing Europe’s attitudes and ways of relating to the world....

    The construction of a unified, modern Europe is at the same time a pragmatic, economic and political project created after decades of violent European history and the result of a much longer historical development in which ideas and visions of a European identity and culture have developed and influenced art, literature, religion, media, philosophy and political thinking. Although, Europe has probably never been more unified, prosperous and peaceful, we suffer from a number of tensions inheren...
