Eric Klinenberg believes that our shared spaces hold a key to reducing our social divisions. In Palaces for the People he argues that social infrastructure, like public libraries, childcare centres and parks, are crucial for uniting our communities and giving everyone equal opportunities and a sense of belonging."
