While societies of the West engage in politics, the rest are supposedly seduced by appeals of cultural identity. ‘Politicians in non-Western societies do not win elections by demonstrating how Western they are’, Huntington asserts. ‘Electoral competition instead stimulates them to fashion what they believe will be the most popular appeals, and those are usually ethnic

In France, where the relationship between the individual citizen and the state is established in the Constitution and summarised in the Livret du citoyen (booklet for citizens outlining political and civil rights and responsibilities), the emphasis has been placed on the role of citizen debates where

The Refugee Integration Strategy has developed since 2000 and emphasises the importance of empowering refugees to ‘achieve their full potential as members of British society, to contribute fully to the community, and to become fully able to exercise their rights and responsibilities that they share with other residents’.
