The problem of how to hold diverse groups together is central to many modern pluralistic societies. The article by Mnookin and Verbeke discusses the key issues that emerge in such efforts, using Belgium as an example. The question, well illustrated by the linguistic and cultural complexities of Belgium, is what social glue can hold together such diverse groups? In this comment, I discuss several social-psychological contributions to the question of managing diversity, with the hope that they provide some ideas useful to this general discussion.
