About this book

Introduction

Discussing common understanding of the concepts of multiculturalism, diversity, and inclusion, this volume critically examines the interpretation and praxis of diversity and inclusion in relation to marginalized populations—from women, sexual minorities, minority newcomers, and aboriginal communities. The contributors collected here present well-grounded epistemological, theoretical, and methodological bases from which to account (at least in part) for the processes and dynamics shaping the relationship between diversity and inclusion, on the one hand, and policy and practice on the other. Arising from research derived in part from community work with minorities in North America, particularly Canada, this volume examines common barriers to full minority integration, with important implications for inclusion efforts around the globe.
