4th seminar as a part of the ESRC Seminar series The Political Representation of Ethnic Minorities in the UK in Comparative Perspective

  • The Role of Institutional and Policy Contexts in Ethnic Political Representation: are Multicultural Models the Solution?

Date: Friday 21st January 2011

Time: 10am- 4.30pm, lunch provided

Venue: Hanson Room, Humanities Bridgeford Street, University of Manchester

This seminar session will assess, in a comparative perspective, the relative merits of varying citizenship regimes and policy approaches to ethnic and migrant minorities’ incorporation for the promotion of their political representation. Thus, the seminar will focus, primarily, on the policy and wider institutional environment (i.e. parliament, local government, the media) and how they shape the opportunities for ethnic minorities to integrate into mainstream politics. In doing so, we will evaluate the claims that multicultural models of citizenship and incorporation are in a privileged position to foster the political inclusion of migrant and ethnic minorities.
