Multiculturalism @50 and the Promise of a Just Society

Entitled Multiculturalism @ 50 and the Promise of a Just Society, this special edition of Canadian Issues, explores the roots, characteristics and structural fault lines of Canadian multiculturalism and outlines the reframing required if the policy hopes to live up to its initial promise of delivering a just society. In his introduction, guest editor and eminent political philosopher Will Kymlicka reflects on the insights of contributing authors some of whom trace multiculturalism’s failings back to its very foundations, but who also offer glimpses” of why and how multiculturalism might aspire to rebirth and offer a “better future”.
