The article addresses perceived tension between the preservation of cultural identities and the flourishing of civil society. It argues that this tension should be dealt with through policy decisions rather than through rights claims. Topics include cultural rights, civic vision, and citizenship. Also discussed are cultural conflict, political dialogue, and social integration.
