This thesis answers two questions; firstly if minority cultures should get
recognition from a liberal state, and given that the answer of the first question is
yes, by which ways and means. This essay will also show the dilemmas between
those liberal scholars and why it can be difficult to agree when they all take points
of departure from the same ideologi.
My analysis is divided into three different categories: conflict, group
recognition and cultural importance. Conclusion of the essay is that the answer
depends on how the scholars understand and define these different values. (Less)
