Coventry University, Priory St, Coventry CV1 5FB

Academic Workshop: Sense of Belonging in a Diverse Britain

‘Sense of belonging’ is a phrase often heard in discussions of the cohesion of our society and, particularly, instances of its breakdown. Following the summer 2011 riots commentators speculated about how rioters could have come to feel so little sense of belonging to their local area that they could loot and torch their local shops and incite such fear in their communities. The same questions are asked in the wake of terrorist attacks in which young British people brought up in Britain have murdered fellow citizens, and the need for belonging is frequently cited as a driver of gang membership.

Organised by Dialogue Society, Birmingham Branch and Centre for Peace and Reconciliation Studies, Coventry University.
