difference and conflict and concluded that three things are crucial in organizing on

grounds of difference. A respect for diversity, an ability to know when to talk and

when to not on the big conflict issues and to central on other differences with the

purpose to take away focus from the sensitive questions. My study shows that a

society that has its ground in difference is possible. And that movments can be

seen as important actors in this process. (Less)
