Citizenship in Diverse Societies


In this new edited volume by Will Kymlicka, leading scholars of multicultural issues examine questions related to multiculturalism and citizenship. Most modern democracies contain significant minority groups whose language, religion or ethnicity differs from those of the majority. Is it possible in such societies to accommodate these forms of diversity without weakening the bonds of common citizenship? In this volume, distinguished scholars explore this question by looking at concrete issues where the demands of citizenship and diversity often clash. Contents:I. Citizenship Education and Religious DiversityII. Political Participation and Group RepresentationIII. Immigration, Identity and MulticulturalismIV. Gender and Ethnic DiversityV. Language RightsVI.
