    Globalization and the changes it brings pose challenges for social cohesion. Uncertainty is growing as many people are concerned about their economic future, social inequality and growing diversity in societies as a result of global migration. At the “Trying Times” conference addressing the issue “Rethinking Social Cohesion” hosted by the Bertelsmann Stiftung in Berlin from September 4-6 in 2019, thought leaders from around the world convened to discuss the future of social cohesion. Ian Goldin, Professor of Globalisation and Development at Oxford University and Director of the Oxford Martin Programme on Technological and Economic Change, gave the keynote speech at the High-Level Round Table kicking off the conference. In his speech “Globalisation, Transformation and Social Cohesion,” he discussed the effects of globalization and its potential in shaping the future. In the following interview, he explores various aspects of his argument in further detail and emphasizes the key pillars of strengthening social cohesion in the future: demonstrating solidarity with others and rediscovering our own capacity for action.
