The Pragmatics of Minority Politics in Belgium.
Blommaert, Jan; Verschueren, Jef
Language in Society, v20 n4 p503-31 Dec 1991
An analysis of newspaper reports, political policy papers and social science investigations, uncovers a coherent world of beliefs concerning minority-majority relations. These beliefs, centered around stable but vague notions of culture, nation, state, democracy, and human rights, reveal a society profoundly troubled by the idea of diversity, instead fostering a strict norm of homogeneity.
