Journal of Democracy, April 2006, Volume 17, Number 2
In his talk, Dr. Fukuyama explored the challenges faced by the liberal democracies of Western Europe, Canada, and the United States in integrating Muslim immigrants. In particular, he sought to explain why the model of multiculturalism that originated in Canada and has been reasonably successful there is increasingly regarded as a failure in countries like the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
