(p.135) 2.3 On the Chances of Ethnocultural Justice in East Central Europe
Can Liberal Pluralism be Exported?

Tibor Várady

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that ethnocultural neutrality and group-neutral regulation cannot accommodate cultural pluralism nor guarantee stability and peace between ethnic majorities and minorities in East Central Europe. Traditional liberal attitudes lack empathy towards maintaining diversity. When faced with the hard facts of ethnic pluralism and rivalry, traditional liberal precepts are unable to find viable models of accommodation and cohabitation.

Keywords:   ethnocultural neutrality, group neutral regulation, cultural pluralism, minorities, East Central Europe
