「04. Annual BAGSS Conference」

"CHALLENGES FOR DIVERSE SOCIETIES"

20 - 21 September 2017. Bamberg, Germany.


// INTRODUCTION

  
      One key characteristic of today’s societies is their diversity: People with different cultural, ethnical, socioeconomic, educational, occupational, political, religious, and demographic backgrounds meet and interact – sometimes voluntarily, sometimes because they have to. But diversity can also provide challenges for the society as a whole, for groups, and for individuals. Therefore, diverse societies and the challenges they face can be viewed as one of the defining issues that cuts across all social science disciplines.
