WENCES, Isabel. Quebec interculturalism: a version of Canadian multiculturalism or a model with an institutional structure?. Convergencia [online]. 2016, vol.23, n.72, pp.115-141. ISSN 2448-5799.

The aim of this article is to examine whether the political model for the management of diversity in Quebec is a particular or provincial manifestation of Anglo-Canadian multiculturalism or if, on the contrary, this nation has endowed itself with some tools and mechanisms which make it viable to sustain that it has designed a distinctive institutional structure and model of citizenship which a number of authors have named interculturalism. The article concludes holding such statement. To achieve this aim, this article analyzes the way both Canada and Quebec have dealt with the challenge of managing this living together in culturally plural societies and how this challenge has influenced their relationship.

Keywords : interculturalism; multiculturalism; integration; cultural diversity; citizenship.
