Does multiculturalism pose new threats to the welfare state? Soroka, Johnston and Banting, and Miller, address important and contested issues within this broad question. In light of what I take to be the focus of this Francqui Prize Conference – and Philippe Van Parijs own concerns – I want to address the authors’ contribution to a somewhat narrower question, namely whether multicultural policies (MCP in the broad sense explored by Banting and Kymlicka) pose additional threats to the redistributive institutions and programs characteristic of welfare states.
