The Centre for the study of democratic citizenship is happy to present:
The CSDC Conference 2021 – Diversity and the State of Democratic Citizenship
When: April 22-23, 2021, on Zoom.
Registration is now closed. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
About: Canada and democracies across the globe face a broad array of important norma-tive and empirical questions with regard to diversity. What avenues are available to immigrants, ethnocultural citizens, or other minority groups to be heard by decision-makers? How have both citizens and institutions responded to this growth in diversity? How do these responses vary across democratic contexts? For the second edition of its triennial conference, the Centre for the Study of Democratic Citizenship (CSDC) will present a broad, multidisciplinary range of papers that address these questions. The conference will include a series of panels for the invited papers, as well as a roundtable. Panels are organized around the following subthemes, with an emphasis on diversity:
