Social cohesion in Europe and Asia: prospects and challenges - Workshop

11 June 2013

The ‘deep forces’ of globalisation and the consequent, unparalleled transformation of economies and societies are having a considerable impact on social cohesion in Asia, as well as Europe. While most policymakers are well aware of the importance of maintaining social cohesion, a better understanding of its multiple dimensions, including social cohesion, social capital and social mobility, is needed in order to shape appropriate policy responses in Europe and Asia.

During this workshop, policymakers and experts from both Europe and Asia discussed these and other relevant issues.
