Intensified migratory movements have resulted to nation-states drafting a great variety of policies that target minority groups and members of minority groups. Particularly, increased attention to multiculturalism in contemporary Western societies has made questions over individual and collective minority rights surface. Indeed, multiculturalism both as an ideology and état d’être has become to occupy a central stage in debates dealing with minority rights. Attempts to recognize ethnic diversity and to accommodate it into the legal and political structures of the society has, on the one hand, prompted questions over the changing nature of state citizenship, social policies, and securitization of ethnic relations, and on the other hand, over human rights, global justice and transnational communities.

This workshop will focus on the local and global phenomena related to minority rights in the context of migration and multiculturalism, both past and present.
