This article examines the tensions between monoculturalism, citizenship, identity and multiculturalism. It is argued that the building of multi-ethnic nation-states, based on the ideology of multiculuralism, can offer tolerance and peace within a common supra-national identity in the global world. It is also argued that a supra-national identity that respects cultural and linguistic diversity within a global culture, may counteract forces responsible for the continuing fundamentally-inspired ethnic fragmentation and conflict and offer a new model for global solidarity, based on authentic and empowering global interculturalism.
