Diversity, pluralism, and the future of citizenship

Diversity, pluralism, and the future of citizenship 

This area will address issues related to pluralism and social inclusion and will explore how the notion of citizenship might evolve.

As a nation shaped by immigration, Canada faces issues concerning citizenship, equity, human rights, diversity, and security. We also face the question of multiple identities: in an increasingly globalized world, some of us maintain an attachment to other countries that may challenge traditional concepts of citizenship. Also worthy of exploration is the treatment of marginalized groups, including disadvantaged individuals, persons with disabilities or addictions, or transgender people.
