Description - Governing European Diversity by Montserrat Guibernau
Governing European Diversity provides a comprehensive introduction to social change at the heart of the political and socio-economic landscape in Europe today. The contributors offer an overview of both tradition and transformation in social and cultural relationships in Europe which enables the reader to: distinguish between 'processes of governance' and 'structures of government'; examine the emergence of new forms of governance and political participation in Europe; evaluate competing sociocultural sources of diversity and unity and the various mechanisms of bottom-up and top-down governance; assess what is meant by 'culture' and consider the construction of a 'national' identity in Europe; explore the connections between national identity and citizenship and apply different theories of identity to issues of inclusion and exclusion; consider the prospects for further European integration and expansion and the difficulties in reconciling cultural and social diversity with social cohesion Governing European Diversity is one of three textbooks for The Open University course Governing Europe (DD200).
