    Project Details


    The interdisciplinary, comparative research programme is intended to explore to what extent processes of transnationalisation, migration, religious mobilisation and cultural differentiation entail a new configuration of social conflict in post-industrial societies. Such a possible new constellation we here label complex diversity. The leading idea is that such diversity is developing at a global level, but particularly in European-style societies, where social entitlements, suprationbal policies and cultural diversity enjoy considerable, but often contradictory degree of legitemacy. In this perspective Canada offers some interesting similarities and contrasts to Europe.
