9780199240630: Can Liberal Pluralism Be Exported?: Western Political Theory and Ethnic Relations in Eastern Europe

Many post-communist countries in Central/Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union are being encouraged, indeed pressured, by Western countries to improve their treatment of ethnic and national minorities and to adopt Western models of minority rights. But what are these Western models? Will they work in Eastern Europe? Here, Will Kymlicka describes a model of Western "liberal pluralism," discussing what would be involved in adopting it in the East. This is followed by commentaries from activists involved in minority rights' issues, both as practitioners and as academics, and Kymlicka's replies to their analyses. Sure to interest anyone concerned with ethnic conflict, this volume will spark discussion among all those struggling over the question of whether Western liberal values can or should be promoted in the rest of the world.

About the Author:

Will Kymlicka is a Professor of Philosophy, Queen's University, Ontario. Magda Opalski is an Associate Professor, Institute of Soviet and East European Studies, Carleton University.

Review:

The quality of the commentaries on Kymlicka's introductory chapter and his own concluding response ensure that the volume overall fulfils its purpose of critically examining the applicability of western political theory to the ethnopolitics of Central and Eastern Europe. The mix of contributors allows for a balanced debate of Kymlicka's views. * The Global Review of Ethnopolitics * The best reflection and most comprehensive and authoritative summary of the debate on the universality of the western conception of ethnocultural justice. * The Global Review of Ethnopolitics * It poses some surprisingly interesting questions about the relation between philosophy and actuality, or philosophy and power. * Radical Philosophy * An important and very interesting volume on a topic of great contemporary significance ... This is a very successful volume ... The book as a whole is an exciting venture in the field of applying normative ideas to an often refractory and complex social reality. * Nations and Nationalism *
