 Globalization in a Very Small Place: From Ethnic to Civic Nationalism in Quebec

Preview

The recurrence of periods of Quebec nationalism is a phenomenon that is hard to evaluate against the concurrent backgrounds of globalization and Canada's own nationalist response to globalization. This chapter examines the different strands of Quebec nationalism and their uneasy relationship with a changing Canadian nationalism. It expresses scepticism about the idea that globalization and regional economic integration provide a painless middle way between provincial autonomy and national independence, and argues that the construction of a civic community in Quebec may indeed require the establishment of a separate state of Quebec.
