​During this seminar Will Kymlicka (Queen's University, Canada) and researchers from the 'Governing and Experiencing Citizenship in Multicultural Scandinavia' research project will shed light on and discuss: What kinds of membership ensure recognition and redistribution in diverse societies? Put more crudely: Which ties are sufficient to bind? These questions are posed specifically in the context of Scandinavia, known for its 'Nordic model' welfare states, where public debate increasingly connects concerns over immigration with the future prospects of welfare states.
