(2009). “A Acadia do Novo-Brunswick et a autonomia cultural: um modelo conceitual“, Interfaces Brasil-Canadá, vol. 9, no 10, p. 9-46.

Acadians form a people that have been assertive and have built for themselves certain autonomous structures despite the fact that they were scattered over several constitutional territories and had to relocate thereafter. The article focuses on New Brunswick’s Acadie where 85 % of Atlantic Acadians and Francophones live. We propose that the Canadian constitution seems to recognise their right to what we call “cultural autonomy”. We describe a multi-component model of cultural autonomy and discuss the different forms of political power that could be invested in a cultural autonomy project in Acadie. This project fits into a Canadian French language societal culture, in which Acadie is invited to join forces with Quebec as leader and other Francophone and Acadian communities as partners.
