Paradoxes of Cultural Recognition

Perspectives from Northern Europe

; Thomas Hylland Eriksen (Redaktør)

«'This volume compares multiculturalist reasonings with national realities, mainly in Norway and the Netherlands, and it thus cuts a critical edge. Focusing on two proverbially liberal welfare states and civil societies, it contrasts them by factors ranging from moral (or moralizing) public policies to popular(-izing) moral panics. Importantly, its well-grounded ethnographies locate themselves in current conceptual and globally comparative contexts.' Gerd Baumann, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands '...Paradoxes of Cultural Recognition gives the reader an accurate and disturbing update on the position of immigrants in Northern Europe and the need to tackle their alienation with future hope for a form of inclusion.' Nations and Nationalism»

Discusses central issues regarding multiculturalism in Europe, based on studies of Norway and the Netherlands.
