Uneasy integration

By David Bidussa*

“We cannot expect newcomers to integrate into existing cultural practices without having the opportunity to contribute”. So Yasha Mounk, in his book “The great experiment: Why diverse democracies fall apart and how they can endure” (recently translated into Italian and published by Feltrinelli). The mass arrival of Jews from Arab countries in Israel after 1949 and the ensuing uneasy integration processes may be an interesting still image to consider, for example.
