Freedom in Diversity
Feb 14, 2014 | Académie Diplomatique Internationale
What is the balance between freedom and diversity? Mass migration over the last 50 years has created challenges for combining the two in many Western democracies. How are those challenges best addressed? Is freedom in diversity possible? How is it achieved?
On February 11, the Académie Diplomatique Internationale welcomed Edward Mortimer and Kerem Öktemco (University of Oxford) to its historic premises in Paris for a lively discussion of these questions.
With Timothy Garton Ash, they are the co-authors of Freedom in Diversity: Ten Lessons for Public Policy for Britain, Canada, France, Germany and the United States, published by the Dahrendorf Programme for the Study of Freedom at St. Anthony's College, Oxford.
Over 60 people attended the event, which was co-sponsored by the Global Centre for Pluralism and the University of Oxford.
