Thank you for the kind introduction and for the very clear summary of the arguments of Multicultural Citizenship. So I thought I’d just mention a couple of the ideas that I’ve been working with more recently. The first concerns this. There are two main types of groups that I’ve been thinking of - immigrant groups and national minorities. What kinds of rights are appropriate for these two different types of groups. I discuss this in the book. I’ve been thinking a little bit just about trying to be more precise about the types of institutions and policies that are appropriate for these two kinds of groups and I’ve changed the terminology a bit. I would now talk about these in terms of immigrant multiculturalism for immigrant groups and multi-nation federalism for national minorities. So let me just say that I hope it’s not dramatically different from what’s in the book but let me just clarify what I mean by those terms, because I will use them.
