The Multiculturalism Research Programme: Established and Emerging Concerns

  • Arjun Tremblay
Part of the Palgrave Politics of Identity and Citizenship Series book series ( CAL)


This chapter provides an overview of the four major categories (i.e. “normative-critical,” “empirical-retreat,” “unlikely survival,” and “theoretical”) of a developing multiculturalism research programme within which this book situates itself. The multiculturalism research programme includes a normative debate on the recognition and accommodation of diversity, differing perspectives on multiculturalism’s current state of affairs, and an emerging theoretical discussion on multicultural outcomes. This chapter shows that contributors to the multiculturalism research programme have developed a number of possible explanations of multicultural outcomes, several of which are derived from comparisons of cross-national trajectories of multicultural policies that identify Canada as an outlier to global trends. The chapter concludes by highlighting the areas of disagreement and the key points of convergence in the developing multiculturalism research programme.
