Rupak Chattopadhyay, Forum of Federations
The title of the Forum is "Group Rights: Cultural Difference or Economic and Political Power?"
Here is a description:
Group rights are part of the grammar of contemporary constitutional politics. Many claim that group rights entail the right to self-government over matters integral to cultural identity. But in reality, claims for group rights often arise out of conflicts over economic and political power – conflicts that may bear little connection to questions of cultural difference. Determining what's at stake in claims for groups rights is essential for good public policy and for pluralism.
The Forum will take place at the The Delegation of the Ismaili Imamat, 199 Sussex Drive, Ottawa, from 2-3:30pm. To register, go to www.pluralism.ca.
