The essays in this volume analyze both the components of citizenship in Canada and the diversity of attitudes concerning it from the interdisciplinary perspectives of political science, sociology, history, public law, and psychology. A number of related themes are addressed: the reciprocal nature of the relationship between legal (political) and societal (ethnic) citizenship; the conflict of identities for members of Anglophone and Francophone, native and immigrant, and European and 'indigenous' subcultures; the rivalry between federal and provincial orientations; and the processes of identity change resulting from shared experiences and interactions. In addition, the book contains an examination of past and present policies on immigration, of current arguments regarding the evolution of the Canadian constitutional system, and of the continuing search for new definitions of citizenship

Ethnoreligious politics in France : Jews and Muslims by William Safran( )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This article focuses on the relationship between the two major ethnoreligious communities - the Jews and the Muslims - and the state in France, as reflected in lobbying, electoral behaviour, and public policies. It shows how the evolution of that relationship, an aspect of the politics of ethnicity, religion and multiculturalism, has been both a cause and a consequence of modifications in approaches to secularism, communitarianism and affirmative action. Finally, it deals with the question to what extent this development corresponds to a pluralist or corporatist model of politics and argues that changes in the relationship between state and society suggest an evolving accomodationist pattern increasingly similar to that of the United States."--Editor
