- How is solidarity achieved in highly diverse societies - particularly those that have been until recently characterized by relatively homogeneous populations? What are the implications of growing levels of diversity on existing social arrangements? These two fundamental questions are explored in this edited collection, which examines the challenges of minority integration in four Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden.
