In the rush to find answers to deal with the challenges of justice in diverse societies, sound normative foundations are often overlooked. This book examines questions raised by diversity and contributes to the ongoing dialogue which endeavours to better understand and respond to the challenges of justice in the context of diversity. Using specific and broader examples of injustices of religion, culture, race, ethnicity, gender, nationality and human rights, this book demonstrates how constitutional pluralist discourses can contribute both to new and legal responses to diversity. This book will be of interest to legal professionals, policy makers and scholars concerned with exploring the pluralities of diversity in the 21st century.
