Citizenship and Pluralism

Alongside globalization, improved mobility, and increased movements of populations, societies have become more diverse. Countries with immigration policies welcoming significant numbers of new immigrants and refugees each year have experienced increased diversity within their communities. This has prompted the need to explore the link between pluralism and economic prosperity as well as the link between transnational identity and nations’ ability to adapt to and benefit from globalization. Integration and citizenship policies are also influenced by the changes in globalization and migration. Some policies have embraced the arrival of potential citizens while others have become barriers to new comers’ integration. Research conducted by the center explores the impacts of globalization upon communities, Canadians’ contributions to and benefits from global connections, citizenship and integration policies, the economic and social impacts of pluralism, and the role of globally connected citizens.
