The Multicultural Society Is Here

Nationalism, a political order that appeals to many and has taken root in countries around the world, has played a central role in creating a shared sense of belonging required for both democracy and the welfare state to flourish. However, it has come at a steep price for minorities, for democratic national welfare states have been built on their sacrifice. But over the past 50 years, a human rights revolution has taken place and attitudes have been shifting, with growing resistance against the idea of sacrificing minorities in the name of national solidarity.

Does this mean a multicultural nation-state is possible? Professor Will Kymlicka says that as multiculturalism spread over the last 50 years, a number of countries have embarked on “experiments in multiculturalism,” and their results prove that it is indeed possible to build a multicultural nation - that trusting in minorities is a “good gamble.”

Now, multicultural society has become a force that cannot stopped. Delve into the depth of multiculturalism through these six lectures by Professor Will Kymlicka!
