Facing diversity
Chrystia Freeland. FT.com. London: Dec 14, 2007. pg. 1
Harvard professor Robert Putnam's work on the impact of diversity on
community values, published this summer in the journal Scandinavian
Political Studies. Putnam found that living in diverse communities makes
us worse neighbours and citizens: "Immigration and ethnic diversity
tend to reduce social solidarity and social capital...Trust (even of
one's own race) is lower, altruism and community cooperation rarer,
friends fewer," he writes.
