(p.35) 3 Multiculturalism
Tolerating Intolerance

Amos N. Guiora

Oxford University Press

The essence of multiculturalism is the acceptance and accommodation of practices and conduct that violate laws of the host country. This chapter asks whether an embrace of all aspects of all cultures comes at a cost. It examines the effects of multiculturalism; the state's role and responsibility in protecting both vulnerable members of the internal community and the larger civilian population; and responding to the harm produced at the intersection of multiculturalism and religious and secular extremism.

Keywords:   multiculturalism, civilian population, state role, religious extremism, secular extremism
