Opinion - Global tensions call for local solutions

It is both right and reasonable to encourage debate about the means by which we achieve that nebulous thing, 'community cohesion' (horrible phrase, but useful shorthand). At a time of rapid social transition, when local and global politics are seeping into each other to an unprecedented degree, none of us - elected politicians, faith leaders, community organisations, members of the public - can duck the challenges created by this change.
