This module explores how different legal systems manage cultural diversity, which includes religious, ethnic and linguistic diversity. The module is based on 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, and also a study of individual topics ranging from family law to anti-discrimination law.
