LAW6057 Cultural Diversity and the Law

Description

This module explores how legal systems manage cultural diversity, which includes religious, ethnic and linguistic diversity. The module takes the English legal system as the core case study and compares it to the experience of other legal systems in the management of cultural diversity. The comparative study of legal approaches to cultural diversity includes an exploration of legal pluralism, the significance of long-standing and newer diversities introduced through immigration, the problems of assimilation and integration, and paradigms of citizenship, multiculturalism and secularism.
