Across European societies, pluralism is experienced in new and challenging ways. Our understanding of what it means for societies to be accepting of diversity has to therefore be revisited. This volume seeks to meet this challenge with perspectives that consider new dynamics towards tolerance, intolerance and respect.

Editorial Reviews

"The editors have done a fine job in bringing together a range of expert perspectives from across the social and political sciences. This book will appeal to those interested in the normative and empirical analysis of ethnic and cultural diversity. It is a timely addition to an important debate on precisely what it means to accept cultural diversity in modern liberal democratic states." (Daniel Savery, Political Studies Review, Vol. 13 (4), 2015)The focus on how 'otherness' is defined in different ways, at different times, and in different national formations, with consequences for the shifting boundary between the tolerable and the intolerable, is especially valuable. But all the chapters have something thought-provoking to say, and the volume as a whole succeeds in drawing together the different intellectual approaches to diversity and tolerance. - Ethnic and Racial Studies
