This chapter focuses on the cognitive and affective aspects of social cohesion; that is on the opinions, attitudes and identities of people regarding the society they live in. It seeks to explore whether these attitudes are linked to the degree of ethno-cultural diversity of a country, and how they relate to various elements of citizenship education.
