Immigration Federalism, Multinational States and Subnational Communities: Comparing Flanders and Quebec

Abstract

This chapter compares the dynamics of international migration in two multinational federations—Belgium and Canada—with an eye to highlighting arguments in favour and against ‘immigration federalism’ in two subnational communities: Flanders and Quebec. In brief, the chapter’s comparison shows that Flemish and Québécois political elites have deployed different approaches to using immigrant integration regulation as a way of strengthening their respective claims for recognising cultural and linguistic diversity along national lines as well as for influencing the balance of power between subnational and national jurisdictions.
