Dennis Gabriel Pepple

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The concepts of diversity and inclusion have taken centre stage for a wide range of stakeholders (Jamal et al., 2010; Giles, [ 6] ), from governments to business organisations and industries. In recent years, migrants from impoverished or war ravaged countries in Africa and Middle East have continue to top the agenda of governments and policy makers in Europe and North America (Levin, [ 8] ; Boeri et al., [ 3] ).The issues of gender and minority rights in Muslim majority countries continue to draw the attention of scholars and activists (Ali and Kramar, [ 1] ; Monshipouri, [ 9] ; Pföstl, [ 12] ). Issues of diversity in Africa range from religious, ethnic and tribal violence, to the tensions between expatriate and host communities in the oil producing countries (De Juan, [ 4] ; García‐Rodríguez, et al., [ 5] ; Murmu, [ 10] ; Samy et al., [ 14] ; Warren and Troy, [ 19] ). Debates about diversity and equal opportunity are also relevant in emerging economies and new economic giants such as Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS) (Nkomo et al., [ 11] ; Ralston et al., [ 13] ). Drawing on insights and experiences of diversity management from the Europe, Australia, USA and BRICS countries, the book in review stands out as a valuable resource to understand and contextualise diversity across many countries and continents.
