Multiculturalism: What Next?

Professor Shapiro moderated this forum on Saturday, 28 January 2012.

That society has become more fragmented is arguably an inevitable consequence of putting people with vast differences in wealth, education opportunities, religious beliefs and values together into a melting pot without adequate integration policies or government support.

1. Why has multiculturalism in a globalized world foundered?
2. What can be done to create a more harmonious society?
3. How can a world free of xenophobia be created?
