Ethnicity, Citizenship and Politics

Tariq Modood
Thu 20 June 2019,

To mark the 20th anniversary of the Centre for the Study of Ethnicity and Citizenship at the University of Bristol, founding director Tariq Modood is joined by Bhikhu Parekh to look back at the work of the Centre and discuss current research.

With the growth of the Muslim populations in Western Europe and concerns about integration, the Centre for the Study of Ethnicity and Citizenship has been at the forefront of co-ordinating and promoting the study of ethnicity, politics and citizenship. How do ethno-religious identities and the governance of religious diversity impact on questions of integration, equality, multiculturalism and secularism?

Modood and Parekh both introduce their latest books Essays on Secularism and Multiculturalism and Ethnocentric Political Theory: The Pursuit of Flawed Universals and discuss the importance of challenging the liberal biases with Judith Squires.
