Queen’s University Mulicultural Policy Index – The Multiculturalism Policy Index is a scholarly research project that monitors the evolution of multiculturalism policies in 21 Western democracies. The project is designed to provide information about multiculturalism policies in a standardized format that aids comparative research and contributes to the understanding of state-minority relations. The project provides an index at three points in time – 1980, 2000, 2010 – and for three types of minorities: one index relating to immigrant groups, one relating to historic national minorities, and one relating to indigenous peoples. The Multiculturalism Policy Index and supporting documentation are freely available for researchers, public officials, journalists, students, activists, and others interested in the topic.

Intercultural Justice: norms, subjects and cultures in diverse societies – a project based out of the CSIC and CCHS, Spain. The project studies the ways in which norms, subjects and cultures interact within modern pluralist societies. The aim is to explore the limits and possibilities open for the cultural translation/transfer of the principles of justice. For this purpose the project focuses on three main fields:

a) The historical construction of tolerance and cosmopolitism as moral and political formulas for the accommodation of cultural diversity;

b) The models for the public management of religion and religious groups in Western societies and their capability to bring under the rule of law and to accommodate the demands made by some ethno-religious minorities;

c) The hermeneutic challenge posed by the cultural coexistence of parallel and sometimes conflicting normative systems.
