 Comments on Shachar and Spinner‐Halev: An Update from the Multiculturalism Wars

Show Summary Details

Preview

The author is commenting on the two previous chapters. He begins with the observation that the first wave of multiculturalists made arguments from justice; liberal states were charged with treating their minorities unjustly, and so justice required their accommodation. The previous two chapters indicate that, at the theoretical level, the first wave has been a success. Next, theorists and politicians must deal with the injustices caused by particular multicultural policies, as is illustrated in Ch. 4, as well as the general impact of multiculturalism on citizenship, as illustrated in Ch. 5. The author attempts to situate these two issues within the larger multicultural debate.
