Jews and Ukrainians in Canada: A Comparative Study of Diaspora-Homeland Relations
April 2, 1990 | Harold Troper, Prof. Morton Weinfeld
A relatively neglected area of inquiry in the field of ethnic relations is the impact of homeland events and relations on diaspora communities, and, indeed, on interminority relations in those diasporas. This essay rep resents a case study of diaspora homeland relations as these have affected Ukrainians and Jews in Canada. The nature of these relations in Canada to day is a product of socio-demographic characteristics of the two communities, the real and perceived legacy of historical relations which existed in Ukraine, and contemporary events in both Israel and Ukraine.
