Daniel Salée's research in recent years has focussed on the politics of ethnicity and citizenship in the Canadian and Quebec contexts, with a particular emphasis on Indigenous peoples/settler state relations, the handling of ethnocultural diversity by hegemonic Eurodescendant populations and socioinstitutional processes of otherization and marginalization of members of racialized minorities. In addition to this current research focus, his scholarly interests also cover issues related to Quebec nationalism, Quebec political culture and federal-provincial relations in Canada. His work has been published in a variety of international and national scholarly journals and edited collections. Dr. Salée is a founding member of DIALOG -- le réseau québécois d'échange sur les questions autochtones and a member of the Chaire de recherche sur l'immigration, l'ethnicité et la citoyenneté (CRIEC) at Université du Québec à Montréal.
