Authors: Crowder, George Errol
Keywords: Politics

Issue Date: 2009
Publisher: Australian Political Studies Association
Citation: Crowder, G.E., 2009. Bhikhu Parekh's multiculturalist critique of liberalism. 2009 Australian Political Studies Association Annual Conference: Politics of the global crisis, 1-16.
Abstract: Bhikhu Parekh argues that we must look beyond liberal democracy to a process of 'intercultural dialogue' in order to accommodate the legitimate claims of multiculturalism. He gives two main reasons: first, liberalism is too 'ethnocentric' to be an adequate framework for multiculturalism, because it necessarily depends on values that are distinctively European or Western; second, liberalism is too 'monistic'. The author aims to show these arguments to be mistaken.
