Assimilation in Post-colonial Societies
The conclusion argues that failures, throughout European empires, to assimilate colonized peoples did not generate much scepticism concerning the assimilationist project. The politics of assimilation has remained a central ideology in Western democracies and even those who once promoted differentialism have, since the attacks of 11 September 2001, promoted uniformity to core values and behaviours. The conclusion explains how the quest for conformity is related to the legitimacy of the modern state and the never-ending pursuit of perfection.
