About the Author

Tariq Modood is Professor of Sociology, Politics and Public Policy and Director at University of Bristol Research Centre for the Study of Ethnicity and Citizenship at School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies (SPAIS), University of Bristol.


Tariq Modood has long been one of Britain's leading commentators on the challenges of multiculturalism. These have only become more acute as they have become entwined with a shifting landscape of religious commitments. In these essays, Modood brings his wise voice to the confusing mixture of claims about secularism, religious liberty, and ethno-religious identity. -- Craig Calhoun, University Professor of Social Sciences, Arizona State University
Tariq Modood is one of the foremost thinkers on multicultural citizenship in Europe and globally, combining conceptual rigour with empirical sensitivity in his work. This book offers a precious collection of his conceptual and empirical insights as they have evolved in the last decade, in the midst of important political and scholarly contestations of multiculturalism. The book is a must-read for both scholars and students in the field of ethnicity and citizenship. -- Anna Triandafyllidou, Professor at the Global Governance Programme (GGP) of the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS), European University Institute
An engaged and theoretically nuanced rendering of the multicultural vision that builds bridges between seemingly divergent points of view. Taking the anxieties of the majority seriously and affirming the value of a secular framework, it spells out what equal citizenship entails in a deeply diverse society. -- Gurpreet Mahajan, Professor of Political Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University
