As noted earlier, the implementation of multicultural (and even integration) policies and programmes vary from the stated goals and strategies. Here the paradox arises again: when it is perceived that immigrants do not integrate, their culture is blamed. In other words the problems are ethnicized or racialized. Social solidarity or immigrant participation cannot be achieved without immigrants and ethnic minorities developing a sense of belonging. But this cannot be produced directly through the likes of Britishness or Dutchness tests, or a policy shift towards assimilationism.
