Abstract

This chapter discusses the use of music and music education for other-than-musical purposes, with particular attention to developing social cohesion in cross-community settings. First, it defines the main concepts used, including social cohesion and intercultural learning. After considering education and social psychology research, it presents a model with multiple dimensions for developing music activities in such settings, including level of past conflict and remaining tensions. The closing section offers ten principles for the design of music and music education activities aimed at social cohesion and advocates for increased research to understand their potential.
