Summary/Abstract: Kenan Malik A Merkel attack on multiculturalism In Germany as in Britain, the consequence of multiculturalist policies was social fragmentation, argues Kenan Malik. But a critique of multiculturalism should not be confused with the current wave of political attacks on immigrants and immigration. Cécile Laborde Which "multiculturalism" has failed, David Cameron? The multiculturalism recently attacked by David Cameron bears little in common with the integration policies of previous British governments, writes Cécile Laborde. What it does resemble is a securitization approach that places citizens under suspicion on the basis of their religion Cas Mudde The intolerance of the tolerant The advance of populist anti-Islamic forces in the liberal bastions of northern Europe -- Denmark, the Netherlands and Sweden -- appears to reflect a betrayal of these societies' renowned social tolerance. But there is a more subtle logic at work Claus Leggewie Monoculturalism is dead: Multiculturalism has yet to come In Germany, conservatives criticize a pastiche of multiculturalism to justify authoritarian policies and deflect attention from decades of neglect, argues Claus Leggewie. Failure to recognize Muslims as part of society is to risk repeating an historical mistake.
