This book is unique in that it brings together for the first time the contribution of the most influential philosophers in the English-speaking world today to current debates about identity formation, multi-culturalism, and diversity. The book explores the pacifying role of democratic law-making as a possible solution to the issues of diversity, justice and solidarity. These issues are currently to the forefront of political debates within the academic community as well as being urgent and pressing political concerns in many countries as a result of multicultural policies. With respect to these problems an emerging consensus is growing among political philosophers of various traditions (mainly liberals and critical theorists), namely, that the practice of constitutional law-making in diverse societies is capable of fostering solidarity. This volume offers some of the most learned scholars' thinking on this problematic subject matter. It will be of great interest to a wide range of scholars in philosophy, political science, law, and sociology, who work on issues of political identity, cultural diversity, and ideals of stability and solidarity. It will also be of interest to policy-makers who are concerned about issues of promoting equality, inclusion and solidarity in diverse democratic societies.
