Cultural Identity and Civic Responsibility

Cultural Identity and Civic Responsibility

(p.155) 6 Cultural Identity and Civic Responsibility
Citizenship in Diverse Societies

Jeremy Waldron (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Two formulations of civic responsibility are advanced: participating in a way that does not improperly diminish the prospects for peace or the prospect that the inhabitants will come to terms and set up the necessary framework; and participating in a way that pays proper attention to the interests, wishes and opinions of all inhabitants in the country. This chapter addresses the questions that arise when these formulations are filled out in the context of cultural identity in a multicultural society. Aspects covered include compossibility, compleasance (that people strive to accommodate themselves to others), and cultural engagement.

Keywords:   citizenship, civic responsibility, compleasance, compossibility, cultural engagement, cultural identity, multiculturalism, participation
