Almost without exception, multinational states across the West are facing existential crises precipitated by the resurgence of sub-state national minority groups. This edited volume brings together many of the world’s leading theorists of multinational justice in order to analyse two of the most frequent areas of debate and dispute in multinational federations: recognition and redistribution. The authors address questions such as the following: What are the most appropriate forms of institutional recognition for sub-state national groups? How is the concept of redistributive justice affected by the presence of federal institutions and autonomous sub-state nationalities? And what are the potential sources of stability that fractious federations can call upon? As well as extensive theoretical analyses, the book is peppered throughout with examples drawn from actual multinational states including Canada, Belgium, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

In sum, this volume provides readers with the insightful review of various challenges connected with the resurgence of substate national minority groups within contemporary multinational federations. The authors present in-depth theoretical analyses and empirical studies that examine problems concerning actual multinational states including Canada, Belgium, Spain, and the UK. The methodological and theoretical frameworks contain several drawbacks but these drawbacks do not reduce the general cognitive value of the book. In fact, they expose difficulties that have to be overcome in future studies. Hence, the work is highly recommendable because it offers inspiring and innovative approaches toward multinational states' problems.
