What's Wrong with Multiculturalism? A European Perspective

What's Wrong with Multiculturalism? A European Perspective

On June 3, 2012, Kenan Malik gave a very engaging and thought-provoking lecture at UBC that pulled together many of the themes he has been writing about recently including immigration, identity, diversity and multiculturalism.

The lecture was broadcast in full on Friday, June 22 at 9 pm (9:30 NT) on the CBC Radio One program, Ideas. To listen to the podcast, go to www.cbc.ca/ideas/popupaudio.html?clipIds=2249132128 or to the resources section of this site.

From now until the end of the year, we will be posting interesting articles, blogs, podcasts and other resources on multiculturalism in Europe. We will also be supporting and encouraging discussion and debate on this very important topic. Please share your resources and ideas.
