This paper comments on the proposals put forth by Kymlicka’s paper. It shows that a desired reconstruction of liberalism cannot be completed unless liberal nationalism is assessed alongside the liberal neutralism criticised by Kymlicka. It defends the distinction between immigrant and European countries as empirically important. It then applies Kymlicka’s approach of ethnocultural diversity to Czech Roma to show that these concepts and their practical implications are helpful, even for the descriptive and normative assessment of groups that do not fit neatly into either of the two basic categories he proposes.
