Keywords: International, Western Europe, English, media, multiculturalism, ethnicity & race.

A collection of articles approaching questions such as: Is multi-culturalism eroding social unity in countries such as Britain? Does Britain need more 'Britishness'? What defines the common ground in the country, and where is the balance between that common ground, Britishness, multi-culturalism and separatism? The London bombing prompted the debate in the UK. Elsewhere similar discussions induced either by global happenings or domestic experiences are taking place too.
