Om Equality and Cultural Capital for Ethnic
In response to the growing concern in a wider community regarding sense of belonging, community cohesion and integration, intolerance, civic irresponsibility, and a degree of hostility that a growing number of people face, the study has had to answer a number of interrelated questions about what qualities are required of a better community in a system of democratic government. It provides evidence of leading knowledge and understanding in the field of equality, cultural capital, and community cohesion and integration. This is done by introducing an alternative perspective or framework to explain how equality claim from cultural capital can be dealt with and why community cohesion and integration of minority ethnics into Scottish culture can be important in order to make real progress in the wider community. The study also generates considerable knowledge and understanding on the issues and debates surrounding ethnic minority communities. The book seeks to contribute to new knowledge on the connection between citizenship and rights to equality from cultural capital by asking difficult questions about why and how minority ethnic groups in the United Kingdom may need to be more active because of the effect that active citizenship has had on its role within a better community. The research findings have provided critical new information on the causes of problems being experienced by new arrivals and an unwillingness to integrate shown by many old and new arrivals, affecting equality and community integration process.
