Accommodating Cultural Diversity
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., Jan 1, 2007 - Law - 240 pages
This book explores recent developments in the theory and practice of accommodating cultural diversity within democratic constitutional orders. It brings together philosophers and legal scholars to explore the inter-play between the normative precepts advanced by the former for the accommodation of cultural pluralism and the reality of that accommodation as it plays itself out in political and legal practice, as explained by the latter. The aim of the book is to provide a holistic picture of the constitutional management of cultural diversity through the prisms of different disciplines and experiences: theoretical and practical.
