Dr. Keith Banting
Stauffer Dunning Fellow and Professor Emeritus, Queen's University

In his workshop, Dr. Banting will explore the historical underpinnings of multiculturalism policy in the Canadian federation, broadly comparing it to other complex and diverse democratic societies. He will take participants through the many challenges and road blocks that this country has faced over the last 150 years in terms of managing diversity through public policy: what has gone wrong? and what has gone right?

He will also explore with participants the many ways in which an ever diversifying society might cope with the upcoming challenges our democracy will face in the future, the politics of backlash and the uniqueness of the Canadian context. He will explore the types of policy responses that governments in Canada can implement to ease into the next 150 years.
