The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada has just announced a new Major Collaborative Research Initiative titled “Ethnicity and Democratic Governance” that will explore ethnic politics and the complexities of democracy in multi-ethnic and divided states. The project is headquarted at Queen’s University at Kingston, in close association with the University of Toronto and the Université du Québec à Montréal.
Queen’s University political studies professor Bruce J. Berman will lead the “Ethnicity and Democratic Governance” project. Collaborators represent no less than seven countries in Europe, Asia, and Africa and disciplines ranging from political science and law to philosophy and anthropology. The research team will work with several partner organizations. Those from Canada include the Forum of Federations, Rights and Democracy, the Metropolis Project, and the International Development Research Centre. Those from abroad include the Club de Madrid, an association composed of 55 former presidents and prime ministers of democratic countries dedicated to promoting democratic transition and consolidation, and the European Centre for Minority Issues.
