Summary

Integrating newcomers and minorities into the social fabric of receiving countries has become one of the crucial challenges of contemporary Western societies. This volume seeks to understand patterns of changing institutional practices and public policies and where the challenges of including cultural diversity into the social fabric are most pronounced: namely the health care system. In recent years, pro-migrant organisations and anti-racism activists have repeatedly voiced and politicised cultural demands on the health-care system giving rise to a lively debate about migrants' access to health-care and responsiveness of institutions to their needs. In a nutshell the book will achieve the following: cent; Provide a conceptual framework to link patterns of political advocacy/ mobilization and processes of socio-political inclusion cent; Integrate the (multi-disciplinary) literature on political mobilization and accommodating cultural diversity in an innovative fashion cent; Present a comparative study on accommodating diversity in the health care system from a transatlantic perspective cent; Generate insight into best practices in the health care system that will be of interest to scholars as well as practitioners in the field. The analysis of health care provision offers an opportunity to test new public policy strategies and the policy consequences of the now widespread aspiration to include citizens more fully in designing and implementing them.
