Abstract

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.

Keywords: multiculturalism, welfare state, redistributive institutions
