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.

Ethnoreligious politics in France : Jews and Muslims by William Safran ( )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 4 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
