not yet rated|write a review
Public Policy and Ethnicity is a response to the growing concern in many democracies that ethnicity has become institutionalized as a political category. The book draws on a number of international studies, including New Zealand, to show that this process of public policymaking creates artificial divisions and boundaries that may become permanent and detrimental as well as being fundamentally at odds with the social fluidity of modern societies. Includes a preface by Jonathan Friedman.
