The approach taken in almost all chapters is indicative of the problems and possible solutions; issues can either be examined from top down (what the state or society can/should do) or bottom up (what individuals can do). Given the plethora of notions and ideas associated with pluralism, inclusion and citizenship, the variety and degree of difference in topic and depth/level of discussion is understandable. However, from the rich discussions and presentations that took place, we can pull together several over-arching threads of consciousness that weave through all the chapters and provide considerable fuel for future discussion, collaboration and planning.
