Abstract Can representative democratic government work where there exist significant and enduring differences of group identity? It is sometimes suggested that one of the answers to the tensions between identity politics and democracy might be the creation of federal structures. In this paper we use a comparative study of federation and identity in Canada and Australia to point to the possible limitations of federation as an institutional means of resolving such tensions.
