Meaningful interaction is an important part of an integrated society. Finding effective ways to overcome tendencies towards separation and polarisation between different groups is not a simple matter, and there is a need for creative thinking.
Much depends on finding a commitment to integration within communities, and work in the education and sport sectors, and with young people, is particularly important.
