Public Policy and Ethnicity The Politics of Ethnic Boundary Making by Roger Openshaw

Public Policy and Ethnicity The Politics of Ethnic Boundary Making


Public Policy and Ethnicity The Politics of Ethnic Boundary Making by Roger Openshaw

Has ethnicity become institutionalized as a political category? Drawing on international studies, including New Zealand, the book shows that this process of public policymaking creates artificial divisions that can become permanent and detrimental as well as being at odds with the social fluidity of modern societies. Preface by Jonathan Friedman.
