The presentation will outline the concept of citizenship regime and explain the simultaneous development of distinct Canadian and Quebec regimes, leading to their current constitutional impasse.

It will then place various scholarly interpretations of the Harper Government´s "new federalism" in this context, evaluating both its implications for the citizenship regime and its political prospects over the long term.
