Multiculturalism has thus shifted from the cultural and social sphere to the security realm in both the United Kingdom and the United States. Cameron thus criticized the dual dimension of the failure of multiculturalism: communitarian – a community withdrawn into itself – and identarian – in terms of values, naturally with political consequences. This was bound to ignite controversy in a country that had made multiculturalism the very foundation of its integration policy. Integration had come to a standstill due to a very small minority that places specific values above universal liberal values. The debate on multiculturalism focuses especially on its negative effects on integration, a key notion that reflects at once a normative and political approach. But the greatest challenge to multiculturalism policies is the power of transnationalism. While multiculturalism, by its very principle, seeks to institute respect for differences within a common space of political participation, a solidarity transcending borders has taken hold, generating new balances of power. In reaction, states are reasserting their prerogatives over immigration, integration and citizenship
