  • All: "crisis of multiculturalism" x
Clear All
Author: Andreea Udrea

This article discusses the retreat from multiculturalism in Europe. It questions whether the crisis of multiculturalism has had any impact on the accommodation of national minorities and/or ethnic groups. It opens with an interview with the former OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities, Knut Vollebaek, which is followed by commentaries of four leading scholars: Will Kymlicka, Keith Banting, Tariq Modood and Jennifer Jackson-Preece. Ambassador Vollebaek argues that the crisis of multiculturalism only affects immigrants, and although the rights of national minorities are well protected, it may eventually undermine these rights. In their commentary, Kymlicka and Banting disagree with the view that the backlash against immigration threatens the rights of national minorities. Ambassador Vollebaek also supports the view that more inclusive policies targeting the members of minority groups are necessary. Modood and Jackson-Preece agree, and in their responses discuss how current arrangements could be modified or expanded to become more inclusive.

Words have their meanings, but some of them also have ‘emotions’. Among such words one could find ‘community’, ‘belonging’, ‘historical/cultural memory’. In the globalizing world we should reconsider some notions more – multiculturalism, postcoloniality. In the proclaimed crisis of multiculturalism one of the most intriguing case is Russia, which since 1990-s discovered itself as a postcolonial state within the globalized intellectual milieu. That is why analysis of multicultural ideology and models of multiculturalism could raise effectiveness within the postcolonial discourse and be one of the most important tools for studying local and global at the regional and world level. But the question is what ‘postcoloniality’ does mean in the Russian cultural and historical context and what the consequences are of postcolonial theories usage in study of transformations in Russia and in the world. The chapter presents postcolonial frontiers of Russian multiculturalism in three axes – identity, citizenship and ideology. Provocation of Postcolonial studies is contained in the idea that actual narratives of cultural uniqueness find the meaning in the frames of territorial belonging and social collectiveness. These ideas formulate postcolonial national states in Europe and Russia. At the same time belonging and collectiveness are the most influential in sense of imperial modernity formation. That is why multiculturalism in Russia is considered as colonial/postcolonial policy and the legacy of empire.
