about this item

This book uses case studies of six regions (Quebec, South Tyrol, Belgium, Basque, Scotland, and Catalan) to explore the relationship between pro-independence movements and minorities. The book looks at how secessionist parties fit immigrants into their calls for independence, while also considering how immigrants, both ‘new minorities’ and ‘old minorities,’ approach the struggle for independence. Contributors are scholars and practitioners in migration studies, human rights, minority protection, constitutional law, international relations, and political science. They identify differences between old and new minorities, analyze the discourse of movements and political parties, and outline a research agenda. Regional citizenship, ethnicity-based nationalism, and reconstruction of sub-national identity are some recurring themes. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
