Multiculturalism and Minorities

Both Canada and the European Union face the common challenge of maintaining politically integrated polities with multicultural and multinational states.  

This EUCE theme will explore questions such as:

  • How do we maintain integration with diversity?
  • How can minority rights and representation be protected in this process?
  • How do we define the new multicultural citizen, their linguistic and religious rights within the framework of institutional guarantees of rights?
  • How do we shift our focus away from ‘nationalizing statehood’ towards a strategy of ‘multicultural integration’?

Theme Leader: Dr. Patrick von Maravic
