The highest levels of participation can be found in the most prosperous areas, amongst the young and people with free time. The lowest levels of participation are amongst the poorest in society, who are therefore deemed to be partly responsible for the increased levels of inequality, as they cannot expect rights if they do not fulfil their responsibilities. This is not something peculiarly British, as the same can be seen from Robert Putnam’s research on the decline of social capital in the United States (Putnam, 2000, 2002).

Two researchers have travelled around the country looking at different levels of encounter between Jews and Muslims and between Jewish and Muslim organizations. These encounters were from a grassroots level, to student level, and to high-level encounter, at the level of community leadership. The project’s report was launched on 5 July 2005, just two days before the terrible events in London. 1 The results of the research show that there are frequent contacts between people from Muslim and Jewish backgrounds, people who have found ways of addressing some of the impact of scepticism and extremism to build constructive relationships.

Not only at the national level do people feel that there are powerful bodies making the decisions they can never influence, they now face global organizations making decisions that affect their lives.
