In addition, a systematic literature review of research conducted in 2011-2015 to answer two key questions: 

  1. What factors influence, lead to, or protect against racial, ethnic or religious exclusivism?
  2. How do social cohesion and community resilience address these factors in ways that mitigate socially harmful dimensions of exclusivism such as racism, intolerance and violent extremism?
