Description

The papers included in this volume cite a multiplicity of traditional obstacles to social cohesion and integration in the region, ranging from xenophobic nationalism to poverty, socioeconomic disparities, gender inequality, and ethnic, religious, and cultural discrimination. This book is based on discussions from the Asian Regional Consultation on Social Cohesion and Conflict Management which was sponsored by the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank. The outcome of this consultation formed the basis of this book. Participants, speaking in their personal capacity, included representatives from government, civil society, and donor organizations allowing for an open and unencumbered discussion of the issues.
