A Conversation with Will Kymlicka on the Challenges of Multiculturalism

Wednesday, October 29, 2014 06:00 PM to 07:45 PM

Will Kymlicka

Description

With multicultural citizenship a fact of the 21st century, what are the limits of tolerance in a democratic society? How can we create shared values and national identities, while also respecting increasingly diverse cultural, religious, and sexual identities?

This wide-ranging conversation will cover:

  • Multiculturalism: Are there multi-ethnic societies that are successful models of tolerance and pluralism?
  • What is the Canadian model, and how does it differ from that of the United States?
  • The issue of minority rights in Europe and in the Islamic world
  • Kymlicka's controversial views on animal rights.

Will Kymlicka holds the Canada Research Chair in political philosophy at Queen's University, Canada. His books include Multicultural Citizenship: A Liberal Theory of Minority Rights; Politics in the Vernacular: Nationalism, Multiculturalism and Citizenship; and Zoopolis: A Political Theory of Animal Rights, co-authored with his wife Sue Donaldson.

Traub has worked as a columnist for Foreign Policy's website, a staff writer for The New Yorker, and a contributing writer to The New York Times Magazine, reporting widely from Africa and the Middle East. He is the author of five books, and is currently writing a biography of John Quincy Adams.
