About this lecture:
The lecture on Minorities, Pluralism and the Law explores the different ways in which a liberal democracy can accommodate the claims of those from minority groups who want to make legal decisions in tune with their culture and beliefs. As part of this discussion, it also examines the rights of those ‘minorities within minorities’ who are vulnerable to pressure to comply with the norms of their social group.Finally, the lectures out some of the advantages and disadvantages of the practical ways in which the state can respond to and work with minorities who want to follow their own distinct norms to regulate their individual and community life.
