Democracy and national pluralism: Ethical and institutional features (DOI: 10.2436/20.3000.02.36)

Ferran Requejo


The liberal, democratic and social rights included in constitutions are unable to regulate an egalitarian and equitable treatment of individuals belonging to national minorities. Moreover, it it impossible for states to play a culturally and nationally neutral role, the way they can regarding other phenomena, such as religion. Consequently, in many cases, national groups have an important moral role to play in not exhausting the individual components and dimensions of the basic values of liberty, pluralism and political equality.
