S1.16 - Solidarity

Saturday June 22 from 14:00 — 15:30 location: room F002

Does diversity endanger social solidarity?
Co-ordinator: Paul de Beer (AIAS, University of Amsterdam)

It is often suggested that increasing diversity of groups and communities results in a loss of social solidarity. Ethnically diverse neighbourhoods would be characterized by less social cohesion and less social capital than homogeneous neighbourhoods; the extent of ethnic, linguistic or religious heterogeneity of a country would be negatively related to the support for or the provision of public goods and be positively related to political instability and civil war; increasing diversity of the labour force with respect to gender, age, educational level, ethnicity or employment contracts would result in a loss of organizing power and lower density rates of trade unions. This symposium aims to take stock of the empirical evidence that diversity and solidarity are indeed incompatible. The results of empirical studies of the relationship between diversity and heterogeneity of a group or community on the one hand and various interpretations of social solidarity on the other hand are presented and discussed. Some of these studies are part of the research programme ‘Solidarity in the 21st Century’ of the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced labour Studies of the University of Amsterdam.
