This work is a synthesis of criticism of the great debates about the national assertion which explores the means of reconciliation between the majority and minority nations. In the context of pluralism identity, these means try to establish distinguished regime of citizenship and apply a sort of federalism by treaties inspired by the pactism tradition. The challenges for the minority nations in their search for recognition is nowadays larger than ever. Even though being recognised is essential so the nations can maintain a healthy relation, it is also necessary to the states affected by the national diversity to take a qualitative step and to establish a development policy. Inspired by the works on liberal nationalism, this book studies the reason for which the citizens need common institutions to delve into democracies exercise and enrich the exchanges between communities. Here the apparent federalism is criticised and the instauration of a federal culture as the basis for hospitality is promoted. The learning of coexisting is clarified through reflections about democracy, citizenship, traditional constitutionalism, autonomy, national diversity and globalisation. Gagnon delves into the concept of federal culture as fundamental pillar for the complex societies who wish to share a common future based on reciprocity and trust, At the same time he delves into the federalism as a model of management responsible for diversity, especially the federalism based on treaties, which is the one that best answers the demands of pactism and the basic values to implement a federalist culture.
