In the debate on multiculturalism in Europe, traditional minorities are often excluded even though their experience with diversity is longer than most. This is because the received wisdom in Europe seems to equate multiculturalism with immigration and lately mainly with Muslim communities. This is different in the Anglo world, and especially in the context of Canada and Australia, where traditional minorities and indigenous groups are considered a dimension of multiculturalism. However, traditional minorities have been part of the European fabric of cultures for centuries, and they have contributed to making multiculturalism work through a number of inter-cultural dialogue mechanisms. This Issue Brief will discuss the role of traditional minorities in multiculturalism, in particular in terms of institutional arrangements at different levels of government.
