The scholarly publication is in progress. It will reflect the multiple perspectives, disciplines, and countries that were represented in the conference. The publication will focus on providing different perspectives on how to conceptualize and study multiculturalism within a variety of areas including but not limited to policy and practice, education, health, attitudes and perceptions, racism, immigration, and acculturation. Updates will be provided on its progress when they become available. Everyone should review the e-book. ≥Perspectives on Multiculturalism≤, which is located on the main page of the website.

A new conference is under consideration. The new conference would have a focus on the practice and policy of multiculturalism from an international perspective as well as applied issues within education, health, attitudes and perceptions, racism, immigration, and acculturation. It would likely be scheduled for the week of June 18, 2007 or June 25, 2007 and be held either at Brock University or in Ottawa.
