The EDG (Ethnicity and Democratic Governance) project is a five-year research program supported by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada and headquartered at Queen’s University. It involves 37 scholars and 105 graduate students from diverse disciplines representing 19 universities and research institutions in nine countries. The EDG project aims to arrive at innovative academic analysis as well as policies and strategies that citizens and governments can learn from as they engage the conflicts, tensions and opportunities of developing multi-cultural democracies.
