This volume brings together the work of philosophers, legal theorists, political scientists, and social scientists who are concerned over ethnic and cultural conflicts: the conflict between the need to adopt and enforce universal norms in the international community and the demand that we respect cultural differences; conflicts between individual and group interests; cultural conflict and globalization in relation to liberal theories of justice and economic development, and others.
