Defending Differentiated Policies of Multiculturalism

Buy Article:

$53.17 plus tax (Refund Policy)

Abstract:

Affirmative action and multicultural (MC) policies are being challenged by egalitarian liberals, as well as republicans, in theory and politically in recent years. In this article, the author focuses on MC policies, the common core of which is to recognise serious ethno-cultural inequalities under conditions of equal civil and political rights, and find legal and political solutions to address these inequalities. The author argues that egalitarian liberal critics need not reject MC policies as long as such policies are properly conceived and implemented. This, however, requires that their normative justifications and practical implementations be reconsidered.
