The social and political developments in various parts of the contemporary world, have witnessed the resurgence of nationalist politics and intensification of hatred in the lives of societies. This phenomenon is accompanied by the growing vulnerability of groups and communities targeted by proponents of restricting trans-border movement of people, opposition to multiculturalism and construction of monolithic racial identities.
