Skrócony opis:

The aim of this course is to provide good understanding and critical discussion of the main theories of multiculturalism and citizenship and the main types of politics of multiculturalism. The discussion will start with the dominant liberal perspective including such concepts as liberal-democratic paradigm, the idea of a free society, tolerance, individual and minority rights, and global justice. This perspective provides various ways of theorizing multiculturalism and citizenship that have been recently criticized by proponents of communitarianism leading to an interesting liberal-communitarian debate. This debate will be of crucial importance for our discussion of politics of difference and multicultural citizenship. We will examine several case studies of citizenship and politics multiculturalism such as Britain, France, Germany, Sweden, USA and Canada. Although considered separately, these issues can be linked in many different ways to provide a thought provoking discussion of the questions and challenges that individuals and societies in the West face at the beginning of the new millennium
