Abstract

All modern societies have become multicultural demographically – but what about in a societal sense? Matthew Wright investigates public support for religious accommodation in general, and Islam in particular. Studying three nations in two countries, Quebec, Canada, and the US, he finds that compared to other religious groups, Muslims are seen to be exceptional and less deserving of religious accommodation. This is especially so in Quebec – but only because Quebeckers have a greater resistance to all forms of religious accommodation.
