This paper examines migration and identity in contemporary Scotland and engages
on-going debate about the relationship between nationalism and cosmopolitanism. The paper productively employs Arendt’s maxim of the ‘right to have rights’ to suggest that while identity would not be the sole or specific focus of policy, more well-developed social policy attuned to the complexities of identity formation would facilitate multi-cultural and multi-ethnic social identification.
