    schema:description "Across Western Europe, 'social cohesion' is seen to be at risk, and its protection has become an important objective for social governance. Exploring the emergence of a politics of cohesion in France, Germany and the United Kingdom, this book draws attention to an unexplored connection: the coincidence between the cohesive society and the active society. It examines political agendas of cohésion sociale, Bürgergesellschaft and community cohesion and argues that, despite country-specific differences, the politics of cohesion yields similar political effects. Individuals and groups, no matter what their respective capacities, are asked to comply with expectations of behavioural flexibility and active conduct. Jan Dobbernack traces these effects to the 'social imaginaries' that underpin agendas of cohesion. This book offers a new interpretation of an important phenomenon in European social policy."@en ;
